AFL lifts Seven (just not enough to halt Nine’s week)

The return of AFL may not redeem Seven’s very poor Q1, but it did offer a boost in weekly share.

AFL averaged up to 680,000 metro viewers last week, however it was dwarfed by Married at First Sight‘s biggest audience this season at 1.1m. That took Nine to another winning week.

Meanwhile all of 10’s shows averaged under the 500,000 mark.
