NRL tips ratings week to Nine
Seven was leading ratings all week -until Saturday night NRL changed all that.
Seven was leading the ratings across last week -until a strong Saturday share pushed Nine across the line in Total People.
An NRL Semi-Final drew 690,000 metro viewers and helped Nine to a 36.5% Saturday share (an extra multichannel also aided Nine across the line). But Seven led the week in primary channels.
Newcomers SAS Australia and The Masked Singer did respectable business, but Making It landed under 500,000 and will need to build. Inside Central Station topped the week on SBS at 243,000.
While Today managed its first win in 3 years, Sunrise finished on top with 265,000 to Nine’s 243,000.
