ABC News up in latest ratings week
Ratings: Nine leads primary channel share, but Seven network takes another week.
Events in Canberra helped ABC to a lift in ratings last week, notably for ABC News multichannel. Both lifted by a full share point compared to the week before.
ABC News was its top drawcard of the week, while 7:30 also enjoyed an increase.
Alas TEN’s Pilot Week experiment saw the network slip backwards compared to the previous week with not enough viewers road-testing what was on offer.
Although Nine led in primary channel share, Seven network won yet another week.
ABC KIDS Comedy / 9GEM: 2.6
ABC News / ELEVEN: 2.3
SBS VICELAND: 1.3
SBS Food Network: 1.0
ABC ME: 0.6
Seven won Sunday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday. Nine led Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday. ABC bettered TEN on Sunday, Friday & Saturday.
Seven was victorious in Melbourne, Adelaide & Perth. Nine won Sydney & Brisbane.
