Ninja Warrior helps Nine to winning week
Ratings: Ninja & Ashes helps Nine to defeat Seven. AGT & Bachelor return strong.
Australian Ninja Warrior took the top 3 slots in the weekly ratings last week (incl. Winner Announced) while a US special also made the Top 20.
Together with The Ashes, it helped Nine to a winning week, but Seven’s new entertainment offerings Australia’s Got Talent and an All New Monty special fared respectably.
10’s new Bachelor series was also off to a flying start, although the network was down on the previous week.
Seven still has the edge on annual Total People share but The Block‘s return will doubtless cause headaches.
