AFL helps Seven steal week
Ratings: Nine was leading the week until along came the Adelaide Crows.
By last Thursday Nine network was leading the week in Total People, but on Friday an AFL match between Adelaide & Geelong hooked 1.06m viewers -giving Seven a whopping 41.7% network share.
On Saturday another 1.1m watched Richmond won against Greater Western Sydney. They were enough for Seven to claim the week in network share.
But Nine held firm in both Primary channels and Demos.
Despite interest in The Bachelorette, TEN’s overall week was not an improvement on the preceding one.

ABC News: 1.4
