It’s been a while since this happened: last week Seven won in network, primary, multichannel, demos, every night and every city.
Thanks largely to the Melbourne Cup and The Good Doctor -together with light competition from Nine & TEN- the numbers fell in their favour.
But it was also a week in which viewers shunned 7:30 shows on commercial TV and flocked to ABC. The public broadcaster beat’s Nine’s primary channel on Sunday and the whole network on Monday,
ABC News: 1.5
SBS Food Network / SBS VICELAND: 1.0
ABC ME: 0.6
Seven won the demos 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54.
Seven won every night of the week. ABC bettered Nine on Monday and TEN on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday & Saturday.
Seven won all 5 cities.
