Seven secured its second week in summer (non) ratings thanks largely to its News, and Cricket coverage at up to 858,000 viewers. But newcomer 7Food has been a modest performer so far.
At just 120,000 Nine’s first tennis broadcast the Hopman Cup is no indication of where it will finish with the Australian Open.
No surprises that Carols by Candlelight topped the week at 1.02m viewers. Last year Nine made the mistake of not logging a repeat with OzTAM and dragging the numbers down. It didn’t make that mistake again.
Pencil in ABC NYE coverage to top this coming week.
Summer continues to be problematic at 10, which had a second consecutive week where every night was beaten by ABC. At 13.1% the share was even lower than last week’s 14.7%. Double ouch.
10 Bold: 3.2
9GEM / ABC Kids Comedy: 3.0
10 Peach: 2.5
ABC News: 1.6
SBS Viceland: 1.5
SBS Food: 1.2
7Food Network / ABC ME: 0.9
Seven won Tuesday – Saturday, Nine scored Sunday & Monday.
It was a razor-thin battle in East Coast cities, but Seven won in all 5 markets.
