News and a current affairs programs dominated the ratings on Sunday night.

The Seven Network's Sunday Night, which featured an insight into the world of Britain's celebrity chef Nigella Lawson, a story on railway deaths and a man who falls asleep up to 70 times a day, won the evening with 1.668 million viewers.

Nine News (1.493 million viewers) was second followed by Seven News (1.488 million) and 60 Minutes (1.402 million).

The work of Australian customs officers still attracts a strong following with 1.320 million viewers tuning into Seven to watch Border Security - Australia's Front Line, finishing in fifth spot.

Closely behind was Seven's Air Ways, about the trials and tribulations of travelling on budget airline Tiger Airways, which was sixth with 1.265 million watchers.

The Nine Network's new family drama House Husbands had a slight decline in popularity, pulling a solid 1.206 million viewers to be seventh overall.

But the family drama was down on last week's premiere in both ranking and viewers - the series was number one with 1.376 million viewers last Sunday.

Even though there was a drop-off in figures House Husbands did win its timeslot.

Reality show Big Brother has held firm in the top 10 and the third eviction show pulled 1.055 million viewers to be eighth.

Comedy Mrs Brown's Boys was ninth with 1.040 million and the ABC's Kevin's Grand Design was 10th with 974,000 viewers.

Even with a new film at the cinemas, comedy duo Kath & Kim is struggling.

On Sunday Kath & Kim: The Souvenir Editions pulled 573,000 viewers to be 17th overall.
