  1. Seven will be happy with Q4, no doubt about that. They should win main channel now too. Had Food Fight worked, last week could’ve been great for Nine. Staturday December 2 (final ratings night) will be an extreme battle, RLWC final vs. Ashes day/night.

      • Yes, point taken, it’s difficult because networks start at different times. But I consider Wall / Instant Hotel vs. Food Fight to be the main Q4 battle and Nine definitely didn’t fly high there. However, that said and even if Seven win, Nine have had their best and most even full year since probably 2006, all quarters still performed, only poor now and back during some of Q2 with Last Resort (Voice also suffered a bit).
