If the ratings race has ever been this tight before, then surely not for a very long time.
Just two week ago, Seven had hit the front in Total People for 2019. But by Wednesday Nine was back on top due to the dismal start by The Super Switch. However AFL came back strong on Thursday, Friday & Saturday pushing Seven back to the top once more.
Seven claimed the week by just 0.2%, although Nine still owned the demos. The ICC Cricket World Cup gave 9GEM a superb 12.1% share on Saturday.
Meanwhile MasterChef also hit a 2019 high for 10 on Wednesday and the FIFA Women’s World Cup was good for SBS.
10 BOLD: 3.4
ABC KIDS Comedy: 2.7
10 Peach: 2.2
ABC News / SBS VICELAND: 1.3
SBS Food: 0.9
ABC ME: 0.6
Nine scored Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday leaving Thursday & Friday to Seven. ABC bettered 10 on Sunday, Friday & Saturday.
Seven led in Melbourne, Adelaide & Perth while Nine won Sydney & Brissy.
