Seven’s golden ratings week

Ratings: Seven scores a 42% share for the week and in Brisbane it went through the roof.

  1. To keen observers some fundamentally interesting points: Seven News Sydney has huge problems, given a sizeable lead it failed to win so often. Given viewer inertia, that must be very concerning for them, and points to a lack of product appeal to viewers generally in that market.
    Secondly Sunrise in Perth copped some very average figures, with Today actually rising over them frequently. Given the games gloss – it points to a very mixed message over there about the gravitas of that program – unable to capitalise. More concernong for them is that it is often the figures from the West which win sunrise the national slot.
    Brisbane must be thrilled – they’ve really gained the most (as would expected) by this whole exercise.

    1. I don’t know how Seven News looks normally, but during the Games, it was an annoying interruption. If an event was in progress on Seven at six o’clock, we were switching to the other channel to keep watching the event.
