The ratings year is drawing to a close, with just 4 weeks remaining in official ratings.
According to one exec, Seven will take the year in Total People and Nine will win the Demos. That will be the same outcome as recent years and it would take a minor miracle not to now occur.
It’s also the way last week stacked up, with Seven again on top in Total People.
No surprises, Nine won the demos 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54.
