Australian Open week gives Seven penultimate week
Ratings: Nick Kyrgios tops the week for Seven -and TEN and ABC win nights over Nine.
The Australian Open tennis player sent the ratings skyhigh with his Tuesday night match hitting a whopping 1.85m viewers for Seven. Ideally timed for the network against The Block, it sent the reality show down to an 861,000 premiere -although it lifted the following night.
The tennis delivered Seven an excellent share in the penultimate week of summer non-ratings.
Sport dominated the week with ABC’s Asian Cup final at 1.67m snaring second spot for the week, while the Big Bash League final at 887,000 was best for TEN. Nine’s best was Nine News at 1.09m and Worst Place to Be a Pilot (314,000) was tops for SBS ONE.
SBS ONE: 4.5
ABC News 24: 1.3
SBS 2: 1.3
Seven won keys demos 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54.
Seven won Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. TEN won Wednesday and ABC won Saturday with 35.9%, in what could be their biggest share all year.
Amazingly, Nine did not win a single night. Is this the first time TEN and ABC have won nights while Nine has not?
ABC also bettered TEN on Tuesday and Friday.
Seven won all 5 cities.
Official 2015 ratings survey begin on Sunday.
