World Cup leaves Footy Show behind
Ratings: AFL Footy Show is battling against Seven's Front Bar, and then along comes FIFA World Cup.
Last night MasterChef & House Rules were neck and neck, while Gruen, The Weekly & FIFA World Cup ruled thereafter.
But Nine’s AFL Footy Show was again defeated by Seven’s Front Bar.
MasterChef managed a razor-thin win over House Rules at 810,000 and 806,000, respectively. TEN’s show topped the demos. Young Sheldon followed at 596,000 as the higher of 2 episodes, narrowly ahead of Home Delivery.
Gruen‘s 758,000 increased on last week, as Seven & Nine switched to split schedules. The Weekly was also up.
Nine’s Footy Show was defeated nationally by Front Bar, including in Melbourne at 134,000 to 191,000 respectively. Thankfully Nine had Britain’s Got Talent in other cities to rise above Seven across the hour, but the brand remains troubled and that’s without factoring in the Sydney edition.
FIFA World Cup kicked more goals for SBS with a Portugal v Morocco game scoring 549,000 viewers.
