A bathroom and the walk-in wardrobe on the first renovated home on House Rules secured a win for Katie and Alex. They topped the leader board with 25 out of 30. The second Sunday episode was on 684,000 after launching with 785,000 a week ago. That number was better though than any of the Mon-Wed episodes screened last week.

Sunday Night then did 434,000 after a break last week.


Lego Masters was down over 250,000 week-on-week, but it remained over 1m and was the clear Sunday champion as it led Nine to start the week with another win.

60 Minutes was on 586,000 after 526,000 a week ago.

No Australian Crime Stories again this week, instead the timely Meghan And Harry: Baby Fever, special which did a modest 277,000.


The first Sunday outing for MasterChef Australia was also the first elimination episode after a surprise Black Mystery Box challenge. Huda was the first to depart after a challenging night in the kitchen. The Sunday audience of 638,000 was the smallest audience so far this season.

The Sunday Project was the next best on 420,000 at 7pm.

Later in the night the final episode of this season of Hughesy, We Have A Problem did 311,000. It was a Rove Live reunion with Rove McManus and Pete Helliar among the guests.


It was a Sunday crime night, which delivered the highest Sunday shares this year outside of the Easter fortnight.

The start of Agatha Christie’s The ABC Murders did 602,000 at 7.30pm.

It was followed by the final of this season of Vera on 735,000.


Part two of David Baddiel On The Silk Road did 152,000.

Part one of Waco: Madman Or Messiah then did just 71,000.

However Viceland was doing good business with its screenings of The Fifth Element with two of the screenings on 80,000 each.
