Seven’s AFL Grand Final has scored the biggest TV audience of 2015.
A whopping 2.64m viewers watched Hawthorn defeat West Coast Eagles, 107 points to 61.
In Melbourne there was a staggering 1.23m viewers watching with 456,000 in Perth. Sydney drew 372,000 viewers. Adding in Regional viewers, the numbers rose to 3.52m viewers.
Seven won the evening, even without the daytime AFL, with a 32.9% share.
The numbers eclipse State of Origin‘s 2.62m viewers in June -but were lower than 2014’s Grand Final at 2.81m viewers.
Tonight the NRL Grand Final gets its chance to top the numbers with the advantage of a primetime audience -but there are two Queensland teams playing. Last year it drew 2.45m viewers in preliminary numbers.
The biggest non-sports audience so far this year remains the MasterChef winner announcement at 2.12m viewers.
