The way things have been for the last year or more, that’s certainly saying something.
Central to this result is the consistent performance of MasterChef and Offspring for TEN at the same time as ABC has weakened its Wednesday night offerings.
The week went to Seven, comfortably beating Nine.
House Rules ruled for Seven as their #3 best rankings, as high as 1.63m on Tuesday. Seven News Sunday was 1.38m, Sunday Night was 1.14m and Home and Away averaged 940,000.
The Voice: Kids topped the week at 1.65m. Elsewhere on Nine The Voice was 1.33m and Nine News Sunday was 1.28m.
MasterChef Australia took 1.06m for TEN on Thursday. Offspring was 865,000 and NCIS was 810,000.
Grand Designs (912,000) led ABC1. ABC News Saturday was 911,000 and a New Tricks repeat was 807,000.
FIFA World Cup: Aus v Spain averaged 427,000 for SBS ONE. Fat v Sugar was 295,000 and Walking Through History was 283,000.
SBS ONE: 3.5
ABC News 24: 0.9
SBS 2: 0.7
Seven took the key demos 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54.
