Seven has now grabbed the lead in the 2019 ratings race in Total People share.
Seven won its 5th week in a row, now with 6 weeks under its belt.
Nine still has 8 weeks won and leads in the demos. Nine has long maintained it is not interested in Total People but demos 25-54, 16-39 and the Grocery Shopper with Child demo.
Nine’s bumper start thanks to Married at First Sight is gradually diminishing, particularly as Seven’s Fridays and Saturdays are too strong in AFL markets. Nine will be grateful The Voice has been performing well.
House Rules is down somewhat on 2018 but still has nights where its beats MasterChef Australia (not every night). Have You Been Paying Attention? is a big drawcard for 10.
