Seven marks best week in 2 years
Ratings: AFL & Big Brother weave their magic for Seven when the network needs it most.
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.
