Seven wins odd week of ratings
Ratings: Numbers-wise it proved to be a week of extremes, but Seven came out in front last week.
While a realty finale scored one of the biggest audiences of the year, there were only two nights in which titles managed to top a million viewers.
Seven won the week over Nine, whilst ABC again edged ahead of TEN.
Seven News (Sun: 1.49m) was the top show for Seven with other brands V8 Supercars: Bathurst (1.35m), The X Factor (Mon: 1.31m), Sunday Night (961,000) and Dancing with the Stars (940,000).
The Block: The Winner Announced was the week’s top title at 2.62m viewers. The Big Bang Theory was 1.35m and Gotham was 1.24m.
Australian Story (915,000), Four Corners (828,000) and The Chaser’s Media Circus (813,000) were best for ABC.
NCIS (688,000), Gold Coast Cops (618,000) and The Living Room (614,000) topped TEN’s week.
On SBS ONE it was Stonehenge Empire (288,000), Twilight of Civilisations (283,000) and The Little Paris Kitchen (249,000).
SBS ONE: 3.9
ABC News 24: 1.1
SBS 2: 0.9
Nine won the demos 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54.
Seven won Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Nine took Sunday and Tuesday. ABC bettered TEN on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.
It has been many weeks since Seven snared Sydney, but last week it topped all cities except Melbourne, which fell to Nine.
There are just 6 more weeks in the ratings year.
