Brownlow brings Monday home for Seven
Ratings: Patrick Dangerfield's win draws a big crowd in Melbourne, with Brownlow night impacting other Monday shows.
The Brownlow Medal once again ensured Seven had a huge audience share last night, drawing 934,000 in 3 cities alone. 635,000 of those were in Melbourne. Patrick Dangerfield’s win was down on last year’s 1.05m but it was enough to top younger Demos and dominate its timeslot.
Comparatively, The Block, 7:30, Australian Story and Survivor were all down on last Monday.
Have You Been Paying Attention? also saw a dip, which is presumably Brownlow affected. But Nine’s filler show Millionaire Mansions tanked, which it will hope is not a sign of things to come for Unreal Estate tonight.
Seven network won the night with 37.6%, then Nine 22.9%, TEN 17.1%, ABC 17.0% and TEN 5.4%.
