Nine scores week with Australian Open

Nine is enjoying an 11% boost on the Australian Open viewing compared to last year, easily winning the latest week.

Nine drew huge audience shares on Friday & Saturday as fans were hooked on late night matches. On Friday it pulled a 39.2% share, but on Saturday it blew out to a whopping 47.9% share. That’s Nine’s biggest share since State of Origin I last year.

Elsewhere Sunrise continues to thump Today, averaging 271,000 to 199,000. Nine was down year year on year.  Worth noting too that ABC’s News Breakfast had a rare win in Sydney on Thursday (by a mere 1,000), while Sunrise won every day.
