Seven scores Total People, but Nine zeroes in on Demos


Last week’s ratings saw a razor-tight battle for the Demos.

While Seven won 25-54 (by 0.2%) and 16-39 (by 0.1%), Nine took 18-49 (by 0.1%) -a result so close it will go down to Timeshifting results in a week. Nine can probably thank Sport for taking the fight up to its rival, with a solid share on Friday night of 37%.
