  1. Wow, Nine won Adelaide, what an achievement!

    And I think Seven won Friday that’s meant to say?

    Also surprised how Over 55s puller 7Two keeps creeping up all the time, has been doing some mediocre nightly shares lately (terrible 1% on numerous Sundays to start the week) and often has to face some massive shares from 7mate and 9Go! at the end of the week… Yet 7Two still ended up being #1 for the week!?
