Seven blitzes Games week

Seven won every night and all five cities thanks to the power of Birmingham Games.

It was always going to be Seven’s week in the ratings, it was only a question of just how big.

In the end Seven took home a bumper 38.5% in Total People, thumping Nine and 10 shares.

The Commonwealth Games drew up to 772,000 metro viewers, but it’s more about overall share and the promotion it has given to Seven’s upcoming shows. On Saturday night 7mate was even the third most-watched channel.

In entertainment Hunted led the week then HYBPA? and Beauty & the Geek.

  1. I don’t know what seven paid for the Comm games but given the time zone, this has rated pretty well. I think I read they secured the tv rights 12 months ago so assume the Victoria event will follow a similar time table. Would imagine all the networks will want in…..the 7+’app was frustrating at times but is definitely improving from earlier games. I like the cricket and could watch the entire replay quite easily.
