TEN tops week but Seven scores crucial victory
Ratings: Seven scores its 21st ratings week of the year -the very number Nine uses to decide a winner.
It was a big week of finales, with MasterChef topping the week at 1.32m viewers.
But despite taking on TEN’s cooking and Nine’s Ninja Warriors, it was another win to Seven -its 21st week of the 40 week ratings year. 21 weeks is the measure Nine News used to claim the year in Sydney. Awkward.
ABC KIDS Comedy / ONE: 2.7
ABC News: 1.3
SBS VICELAND: 1.2
SBS Food Network: 0.9
ABC M: 0.6
Seven won 16-39 and 25-54 demos.
Seven won every night except Tuesday which fell to Nine. TEN bettered Seven on Tuesday, while ABC defeated TEN on Friday & Saturday.
Seven claimed victory in Melbourne, Adelaide & Perth. Nine won Sydney & Brissy.
