So who won Summer anyway?

Seven won in Total People for the 8th summer in a row.

Seven: 28.7
Nine: 26.7
TEN: 20.1
ABC: 18.2
SBS: 6.2

Primary channel:
Seven: 20.0
Nine: 18.4
TEN: 13.0
ABC: 12.6
SBS ONE: 4.7

But Nine won the demos 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54.

Seven won Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. Nine ranked first in Sydney.

Seven won 7 weeks and tied 1with Nine. Nine won 2 weeks and tied 1 with Seven.

The top rated show over summer was the Australian Open Men’s Final at 1.88m viewers, followed by the match with Kyrgios v Murray (1.85m), My Kitchen Rules episodes in the final week of summer (1.82m and 1.71m), Asian Cup Aus v Korea (Extra time: 1.65m), NYE Midnight Fireworks (1.54m), My Kitchen Rules (1.49m) and Carols by Candlelight (1.49m).

Best for TEN was the Opening Night of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! (1.22m). This week TEN advised it had increased its share by 4% in 25-54s, however the results are for weeks 1-7 (rather than all of summer) for 6pm – 10:30pm (rather than 6pm – midnight) and don’t indicate if this is a commercial network share or not.

    Do we have the % shares for 25-54 for each channel (including digis)?

    Also do we have FTA share V STV share for the summer.

    FTA viewing normally drops and STV surges ins summer – but these numbers issued by OZTM (owned by the networks) of course exclude that.
