Winter finale helps Seven take Wednesday
Ratings: Rebecca Gibney drama ends its season run with a timeslot win -where to from here?
Seven’s Winter finished its run last night at 819,000 viewers, a slight increase on last week’s 804,000, both of which are on par with where the series sat for most of its run.
Factoring in healthy Timeshifted numbers will now come into play as the network mulls whether to renew the show or not. Comparatively, A Place to Call Home was not renewed when it was doing around 1.00m viewers -but period pieces are expensive and the show skewed older.
With its MKR lead-in Winter has done well in the demos, in a close tussle with Wonderland for younger viewers and in front with 25-54s. A renewal would be very likely.
Meanwhile The Block was flat with 638,000 viewers.
