Nine’s big ratings week
The race is almost run, but Nine serves the year's biggest entertainment audience of the year.
Nine enjoyed a big lead in the ratings last week thanks to The Block Auction, but also there were some low numbers from rivals elsewhere.
At 1.84m the Winner Announced was the biggest non-sport audience of the year.
Last week Hard Quiz was the second-highest entertainment show of the week and HYBPA? was next.
But Seven News leads the weeknight news pack ensuring the network remained second overall.
Including this week there are just two more survey weeks remaining. Hope you have your PVR stock-piled with shows.
