Seven wins Total People but Nine wins Demos
Ratings: 7 wins from 7 weeks for Seven, but Nine managed to rescue a week after a clever scramble.
The ratings race is underway once more with Seven still on top, with 7 weeks won thanks largely to My Kitchen Rules.
But last week Nine won the Demos for the first time this year with strong results for You’re Back in the Room and Married at First Sight. Nine won 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54 – good outcome given its struggle with Reno Rumble.
