The 61st annual TV Week Logie Awards dominated the TV ratings for Sunday night, on a night that saw ABC’s Tom Gleeson take out the Gold.

The Logies were the highest rating entertainment program on the night, with 866,000 viewers across the five metro markets.

The Logies Awards Arrivals saw 799,000 viewers tune in, making it the fourth most-viewed show on the night behind Seven News and Nine News Sunday.

The night saw live performances by three local acts whose careers were forged on Australian television; Jessica Mauboy, Delta Goodrem and Guy Sebastian.

Rising US boy band Why Don’t We also performed on the night.

Dylan Alcott, host of ABC’s music TV show The Set, took out the Graham Kennedy Award for Most Popular New Talent. He beat The Voice Australia’s Joe Jonas for the award.

It wasn’t the most successful night for music programming however, as The Voice Australia lost its category of Most Popular Entertainment Program to Gogglebox Australia.

Eurovision – Australia Decides 2019 also lost out to Have You Been Paying Attention?
