The Logies is Australian television's night of nights, when the stars of the small screen gather to receive awards for their achievements of the past year.

Sunday's 2018 TV Week Logie Awards, however, delivered its lowest audience to date, drawing just 851,000 metro viewers on Channel Nine. 

As reported on Mumbrella on Monday, the figure is the lowest audience for the Logies since the OzTAM ratings system began at the start of the 2001 ratings year.

This year's Logies were a disappointing result for Channel Nine, as last year's event attracted 972,000 metro viewers - 121,000 more than this year.

This contrasts even more sharply with 2016's broadcast which drew 1.119 million viewers. 

The poor ratings result could be in part due to scheduling times.

As reported by Mumbrella, the Logies ceremony was scheduled to run from 7:30pm to 11:00pm, but Grant Denyer - who one the coveted Gold Logie - was awarded well after the scheduled finishing time.

The big ratings winner for the evening was Channel Seven's House Rules, netting 915,000 metro viewers, with Channel Ten's MasterChef coming in third with 718,000.
