The Wall beats Family Food Fight in new ratings war
Ratings: Seven game show gives away more cash in a single night than Nine's food show offers all season -and claims first victory.
Seven has claimed victory in the first night of the final ratings chapter for 2017.
The Wall won its timeslot convincingly with 974,000 viewers, beating an extended Family Food Fight on 614,000. Nine’s new food show was eclipsed by Australian Story on 750,000 & 7:30 on 698,000, leaving All Star Family Feud with 439,000.
Seven’s new game show, which gave away more than twice the cash prize of Nine’s season in a single night, was also second in the demos for the night. But social media comment was divisive, meaning this battle may not be over.
