Australia’s Got Talent Soars to the Top Spot of Overnight Ratings for Seven

After a three-year hiatus, Australia’s Got Talent is back on free to air TV and this time, the show’s back on Seven. After another cancellation by Network Nine, the show has been picked up and has just recently started airing its ninth season last July. And clearly, the show still has what it takes to get another successful run this season with its consistent and improving TV ratings numbers.

Just for its Sunday night airing, the show has managed to get over 865,000 viewers for the 5-city aggregate figure. That number alone allowed the popular reality show competition to claim the top spot ahead of other Sunday night favourites including Australian Survivor on Ten and the live broadcast of the Mid Year Ashes Second Test on Nine — with the former getting 650,000 viewership and the latter gaining 542,000 for Day 5 of the 2nd Test between England and Australia.
