Events upstage ratings week
Ratings: True crime takes Nine to the win, but AFL pulls in a whopping audience.
The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey drew big numbers on Monday and Tuesday. Added together with The Block it helped Nine win the week.
But it was Seven’s AFL on Saturday that pulled out a whopping 1.79m viewers for its Post Match (and 1.24m for the bulk of the match). AFL was almost enough to see Seven clinch the week.
In the end Nine stayed in front – just- in Total People and comfortably topped the Demos.
