Sister show 9-1-1: Lone Star averaged 1.7%/1.5% to win the 9.30 hour in the 18-49 demo while 25-54s opted for TVNZ 1’s 20/20 (2.3%/1.1%); TVNZ 2’s Aroha Nui Say I Do averaged 1.3%/0.9%.

Prime’s 8.30 movie Cradle 2 The Grave averaged 0.4%/0.3%, Eden’s Escape to the Chateau DIY 0.1%/0.0% and Duke’sFamily Guy 0.7%/0.6%.

Earlier, TVNZ 1’s Seven Sharp (6.3%/4.5%) crushed Three’s The Project (3.1%/2.5%) and TVNZ 2’s Shortland Street (3.1%/2.7%).

As a result, TVNZ 1 won the night with massive core demo shares of 36.1% (25-54) and 32.0% (18-49).

TVNZ 1 also swept Sunday night, when Hyundai Country Calendar (6.3%/4.7%) and Sunday (4.4%/3.2%) out-rated DWTS (3.6%/2.7%) and TVNZ 2’s Britain’s Got Talent (2.8%/2.0%).

Lead-outs George Clarke’s Remarkable Renovations (3.4%/2.3%) and part two of The Tower (2.1%/1.6%) topped movie premieres Shazam! (1.7%/1.1%) and The Girl on the Train (1.1%/0.7%).
