It was a curious week in the ratings last week with Nine coming first in primary channel share and demos, but beaten in network share by Seven.
Just 0.6% split the two rivals -meaning the 0.7% share on 7food helped Seven to cross the line.
Since last December Seven has enjoyed one extra channel than Nine and last week it made all the difference.
Despite The Masked Singer topping the week 10 was light on and slipped behind the ABC. SBS was up last week.
10 BOLD: 3.7
7mate / 9GO!: 3.6
ABC KIDS Comedy: 2.8
10 Peach: 2.1
ABC News: 1.5
SBS VICELAND: 1.3
SBS Food: 1.1
SBS World Movies: 0.9
7food / ABC ME: 0.7
Nine led the demos 16-39 and 25-54.
Seven led on Sunday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday. Nine claimed Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday. ABC bettered 10 on Sunday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday.
Nine won Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane. Seven won Adelaide & Perth.
