  1. Nine wins the half point mark taking al 3 demos and beating Seven in their own measure of success: 25-54.

    But, they’ve dropped the ball after the Voice. Will Olympics and Big Brother be enough to keep them #1 till years end?

    It’s gonna be close!

  2. I think 9 has 16-39 in the bag for the year, 7 has total people in the bag. 18-49 and 25-54, 7 can still catch up if their stars align. they are not as far behind as i thought.

    Last year while the block was huge every night for 9, 7 won every single week, and most of then in demos too. i think that is what we will see for the rest of the year with Big Brother. BB will be huge but 9 dont have anything for 8:00 onwards planned giving 7 the opportunity to come out on top.

    i find it odd that ten, the network that bangs on about the importance of demos the most, is coming a distant 3rd by all measures, long gone are the days where ten would always win 16-39 and be competitive in 18-49.
