Nine now has a second ratings week under its belt, finishing just 0.6% ahead of Seven.
Both networks now tie the early scoreboard with 2 weeks each.
Married at First Sight, which wraps mid-next week, continues to dominate with the top 4 slots of the week. My Kitchen Rules remains a formidable runner-up. But TEN slipped backwards last week as I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here heads towards its finale. On Saturday the network’s primary channel slipped behind SBS.
There were also two local dramas which debuted last week. Harrow managed a respectable 665,000 for ABC, driven by 55+ aged viewers. Safe Harbour on SBS struggled at just 162,000.
