AFL helps Seven win the week, UK dramas drive ABC.

Ratings: Seven takes week from Nine. ABC beats 10.

In the week that Nine was forced to cull its AFL Footy Show after 2 and a half decades, Seven’s AFL is delivering good numbers.

On Saturday Seven pulled out a 40% share and another 37% on Friday, fundamentally due to AFL. That helped the network pull away from a close battle for a convincing win against Nine.

Meanwhile election-related programming and UK dramas helped ABC to top 10 once again -but 10 is doing good business with on of its multichannels.
