Seven snatched back a ratings week from Nine last week thanks to its multichannels tipping it past the winning post.
But Nine won the primary channel and the demos.
Seven now has 20 weeks of the 40 week ratings year, whilst Nine has 3, meaning it has just one more week in its sights to give it glory in “weeks won.” The race is narrower in terms of share and demos, but Seven still leads those too.
With no MasterChef last week TEN slipped backwards, finishing just ahead of ABC.
ABC / TEN: 11.4
ELEVEN / ONE: 2.8
ABC News: 1.4
SBS VICELAND: 1.0
SBS Food Network: 0.9
ABC ME: 0.6
Nine easily won the demos 16-29, 18-49 and 25-54.
Seven won Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Nine scored on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. ABC bettered TEN on Friday & Saturday.
Nine claimed victory in Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane, whilst Seven again won in Adelaide and Perth.
