The combination of AFL and Big Brother has given Seven its best ratings week in two years.
It’s a big boost for the network that has only 1 other ratings week this year under its belt, and a victory for CEO James Warburton.
Seven also drew its best week in 25 – 54s in two years, and -remarkably- its best week in 16-39s in over a decade (excluding Olympics).
But it was MasterChef that was the week’s top rating Reality show.
