Nine even won the week in Melbourne during a week of AFL finals and nationally is leading its rival for the Demos.
But Seven is in front in Total People and weeks won. With less than 3 months until the end of the ratings year, the battle should ensure viewers are teased with some tempting content.
Last week’s results saw dual contests for first and third places once again.
The Block (Sun: 1.55m) again topped the week. Other brands to score for Nine were Nine News (Sun: 1.32m), 60 Minutes (1.18m) and House Husbands (1.08m).
Seven News (Sun: 1.2m), The X Factor (Mon: 1.16m) and Sunday Night (1.08m) were best brands for Seven.
TEN’s best performers included The Bachelor (863,000), Family Feud (659,000 on 3 channels) and The Project 7pm (643,000).
ABC News (Sun: 853,000), ANZAC Girls (800,000) and Father Brown (797,000) scored for ABC. On SBS ONE it was Who Do You Think You Are? and Machu Picchu Decoded (both 364,000) then Destination Flavour Down Under (309,000).
SBS ONE: 3.8
ABC New 24: 1.1
SBS 2: 0.8
Nine easily took the demos 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54.
Nine won Sunday – Thursday while Seven took Friday and Saturday. ABC bettered TEN on Monday and Saturday. On Saturday, TEN’s primary channel was so low it was beaten by GO!
Nine ranked first in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, with Seven strong in Adelaide and Perth.
