In the breakfast battle, Jones was the winner with his show on 2Gb jumping by 1.4 points to a share of 18.5%. Last week, 2Gb was censured by the Australian Communications and Media Authority over Jones’ climate change claims. The watchdog also labelled Jones’ comments about Pm Julia Gillard as disrespectful.

Among the commercial FM breakfast shows, The Kyle & Jackie O Show on 2Day FM has consolidated its lead, with a rise of 0.7 points to a share of 10.5%. Acma is currently investigating Sandilands’ “spider baby” jokes and earlier this year censured him for his “piece of shit” attack on journalist Alison Stephenson.

Meanwhile, ABC702′s breakfast show presented by Adam Spencer had the biggest fall, down from 13.6% to 12%.
