Nine sings with its first summer win

The Nine Network has won its first week of summer ratings, thanks to Carols by Candlelight.

The annual singalong stole the lion’s share of Christmas Eve viewers with 1.53m viewers and a whopping 44% evening share, and helped push Nine above Seven in Week 52.

The ABC also beat TEN for the week.

Nine won Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, with Seven taking Adelaide and Perth yet again.

While Carols by Candlelight pulled an audience of 1.53m on Friday night, its Saturday replay saw its average figure tumble to 871,000 (so which bright spark didn’t code them separately?), pushing Seven News to the #1 spot for the week.

Week 52 was the final week of the 2010 Ratings year. 2011 Ratings begin today.

Week 52

  1. So because CBC didn’t do well in repeat it is not the #1 show when in fact it is? Forget averages and just rank the shows as they rate individually.

    Anyway good to see Nine win a week!

  2. yes thats right david i do remember the carols were done like that as they have been doing that for the last couple of years you think 9 thought of seperating the 2 by now so they could have 1.5 for friday and the other screening just a seperate so it looks better but we know 9 is run by monkeys and they will never do anything sensible!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Carols by Candlelight is the number one show of the week. No one is thinking about the Christmas Day repeat when they think of Carols by Candlelight. They are thinking of the audience that watches it on Christmas Eve. It hasn’t been done any other year, so why should it happen this year?
