In what must be a first in a very long time, not a single show averaged over one million metro viewers last week, during survey.
The top ranking show of the week was The Block at 976,000 viewers. While Seven News drew up to 1,051,000 on Monday, its average for the week was still under the magic million. It’s a blow to Free to Air TV as competition from Streaming is set to increase with Disney+ and Apple TV+ on the way.
Nine won another week and led 25-54 and 16-39 demos. Cricket on 9GEM topped multichannels with AFL Finals regaining network share for Seven on Friday and Saturday. Australian Survivor continues to score for 10, now just a week from its finale.
