  1. Nine also have the Ashes in primetime and the NRL Finals will likely do well along with that GF as well and iy not just be Sydney and Brisbane watching (Melbourne Storm are top of the ladder 2 games clear)
    So Nine are sitting well, plus you have to remember for the AFL GF it is on in the afternoon so out of the 6pm primetime rating figures start (should be Midday weekends).

    That’s kind of where it’s a bit off even though it’s always been that way, as in if say The Chase was counted then Seven would be easily ahead now, should be 4pm start Mon-Fri, especially in this era when delivery of food is high. Those companies and Supermarkets should be prime targets to advertise just as people get home at around 5pm and think “What to do for dinner.”

  2. It’s going to be an interesting ‘run home’ to Christmas non-ratings and outcome of the ratings battle… Nine have new season of The Block to launch next Sunday which should provide a firm foundation for some of its weekday evenings… Seven have concluding then finals weeks of AFL then the GF.
