Seven now has 6 wins from 6 weeks, as TV heads into two weeks of Easter non-ratings.
Seven’s start to the year has been impressive, with Nine and TEN barely able to chalk up any hits against the might of My Kitchen Rules.
Morning television and 7flix notwithstanding, Seven’s primetime is the poster child for Free to Air ratings.
But last week Nine came home with a wet sail thanks to the NRL and ICC World Twenty20 Cricket. Nine managed to win the week in the biggest markets, Sydney and Melbourne.
TEN’s share dropped slightly without I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here but its newer titles were amongst its best. It just needs them to rate higher.
Seven won the demos 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54.
