Nine shifts ratings win into Top Gear

The Nine Network has won Week 8, its first week of survey ratings for 2010.

Boosted by its Winter Olympics coverage and Top Gear Nine just managed to clear Seven to take ratings gold.

Nine finished with 29.9% to Seven’s 29.2% and TEN’s 19.5%. The ABC had 16.4% and SBS 5.1%.

Nine also won three key demos 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54.

In digital channels the results were GO! 3.3%, 7TWO 3.2%, ABC2 1.5%, ONE 0.9%, ABC3 0.5% and SBS TWO 0.4%.

Top Gear‘s first new episode for 2010 was the #1 show of the week driving to a big 1.68m viewers.

Nine won Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday while Seven won Monday, Friday and Saturday.  The ABC again defeated TEN on Friday and Saturday. Nine won Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane with Seven taking Adelaide and Perth.

But as one of three Olympics-affected weeks, Nine will need to separate the win from traditional survey weeks in its reporting at the end of the year.
