Seven has dominated ratings in all key demographics overnight once again, with the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games taking out the top two spots.

Sunday's coverage of the fourth night of the games reached 1.247 million viewers, with the evening session only recording one thousand viewers less.

The Games provided ratings gold for the network over the course of the entire weekend, with Friday and Saturday night's coverage drawing in 1.09 million and 979,000 viewers, respectively.

Last week, the Opening Ceremony reached just over two million viewers, making it the biggest in over a decade, outperforming both the summer and winter Olympics and previous Commonwealth Games

Ten's Bachelor in Paradise took it's worst blow to ratings yet, falling to 611,000 viewers.
