AFL rules Seven’s week


Seven has taken another ratings week.

The AFL Grand Final drew the biggest TV ratings of the year at 2.64m viewers -of course the daytime event did not factor into any primetime share.

But there were ties in key demos between Seven and Nine.

ABC and TEN shows both pulled their best numbers mid-week.

NITV also drew a 1.0% share on Friday thanks to the Marngrook Footy Show final -ten times better than the usual 0.1%.

One Comment:

  1. The ACCC can you these figures to see that there is no concern in a TEN Foxtel merger. It seems very obvious that it has been a two horse race in the ratings for quite a substantial time. Bring on some competition we really need it.
