Sunday Night topped the evening with 1.51m viewers, featuring an interview with Victoria Cross winner Ben Roberts-Smith.
Seven won the first night of the week thanks to Seven News (1.4)m, Border Security (1.15m), The Force (1.09m), Bones (1.07m) and Castle (811.000 / 524,000).
Nine, TEN and ABC all managed to score shows above the magic million.
Nine News (1.35m) led Nine followed by One Day Cricket (1.21m, 1.00m).
Three of TEN’s shows topped 1m viewers: New Girl (1.13m), Modern Family (1.08m) and Homeland (1.07m) which defied trends to lift its stock. Less successful was Young Talent Time now down to 632,000 and shedding numbers each week. A soft lead-in from The Project (323,000) is no help. The return of House was just 360,000.
Midsomer Murders was strong on 1.01m, then Grand Designs (989,000) and ABC News (793,000). A repeat of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries was 289,000. The Last Race was just 169,000.
A History of Celtic Britain topped SBS ONE with 314,000, with The Code on 193,000 and World News Australia on 176,000.
ABC2’s Timmy Time (239,000) ranked first on multichannels.
