The 2019 Melbourne Cup Takes Home the Crown for Overnight TV Ratings on Free to Air

It was a big night for Network 10 with the live coverage of the 2019 Melbourne Cup race. With a whopping 1,324,000 viewership across the 5-city metro, the race took the top spot of free to air overnight ratings. Vow and Declare (23) with jockey Craig Williams was hailed as the winner of this year’s Melbourne Cup race, which was followed by Prince of Arran and Il Paradiso for the second and third spots.

Despite still hitting well over 900,000 viewers, The Block ended up being ousted from its consistent top rank by this special event. Other notable free to air shows that managed to secure a place in the top 20 overnight ratings include the new season of The Amazing Race Australia, The Chase Australia, Bride & Prejudice, and Prince Charles: Inside the Duchy of Cornwall special.
