After weeks of losses to Seven, Nine has won the week in Total People -but only just.
For Seven to finish so close in a State of Origin week is particularly impressive. With Timeshifted numbers due in a week’s time, Seven could gain ground, as it did earlier this year.
But there’s no denying Nine’s State of Origin (Match: 2.34m / Pre Match: 1.59m) pulled the biggest audience so far this year. Next for Nine were Nine News (Sunday: 1.29m), Married at First Sight (1.11m) and A Current Affair (982,000).
Catching Milat (1.46m) was best for Seven, followed by Seven News (Sun: 1.46m), House Rules (Reveal: 1.07m) and Home and Away (748,000).
MasterChef Australia (Tues: 1.15m) remains strong for TEN. Other brands were Modern Family (743,000), NCIS (743,000) and Have You Been Paying Attention? (623,000).
Best for ABC were ABC News (Sun: 903,000), Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (783,000) and Australian Story (703,000).
Eurovision Song Contest (Final: 592,000), Great Continental Railway Journeys (301,000) and Simon Reeve’s Caribbean (276,000) led for SBS ONE.
ONE / ELEVEN: 2.7
ABC News 24: 1.1
SBS 2: 0.9
