Close week in Nine & Seven ratings race
Ratings: Just 1% gave the ratings win to Nine last week.
Last week was another win for Nine -but only by 1%.
Despite no stripped reality show, Seven’s multichannels helped it to close the gap with its key rival. Nine’s lead is so slender it could yet be lost to Timeshifted viewing.
