Seven and Nine in tight ratings week battle

Just 0.2% gave Seven the winning edge in a close battle, while ABC attracted a boost from news events.

Last week was dominated by The Voice -whether as entertainment or politics.

Seven’s talent show topped entertainment thanks to the coded Winner Announced portion in which Tarryn Stokes won the 2023 title. Seven now cites the show as  their top entertainment program in 2023.

Outside of strategically-coded segments The Block was the other entertainment standout as it edges closer to its auction, expected on November 5.

The Voice to Parliament Referendum also saw ABC draw a boost on Saturday with a 26.3% share -including 8.5% for ABC News.

It was a razor thin win by Seven for the week overall.
