The Doctor dents commercial TV’s Sunday ratings share

After a slight respite on Tuesday, the TV audience for Nine’s Home Made continued its downwards trajectory on Sunday.  

Last night’s audience for the home renovation show was 958,000, down slightly on the 975,000 of the week before.

But all of the commercial networks saw a smaller Sunday night audience than usual, thanks to ABC1’s Doctor Who special increasing the public broadcaster’s share from its suaul Sunday level.

According to preliminary ratings from OzTam, Seven won Sunday: Seven 27.7%; Nine 26.6%; Ten 24.8%; ABC 17.2%; SBS 4.2%.

  1. Seven News – Seven 1.8m
  2. Nine News – Nine 1.6m
  3. Masterchef – Ten 1.6m
  4. Sunday Night – Seven 1.5m
