Seven’s Live coverage of the 2017 Brownlow Medal delivered the network a huge share, although it was not quite enough to topple The Block.
1.09m viewers watched Dustin Martin win the AFL medal, with 654,000 of them in Melbourne. The Block pulled 1.12m viewers, down on last Monday’s 1.33m but still topping demos. 7:30 followed at 648,000 then Australian Survivor which was up at 625,000 -higher on a single channel than on 3 on Sunday night.
Excluding Brownlow coverage Have You Been Paying Attention? led from 9pm but was down on last week. ABC also saw a drop without Q&A while a 1994 movie did little for Nine.
