Nine nabs penultimate ratings week

Cricket delivered an unbeatable share last week, before Travel Guides topped entertainment. A quiet week for 10.

Australia’s win at the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup underpinned Nine winning the second last week of 2023 survey, a week in which was soft on entertainment audiences.

Travel Guides topped entertainment viewing followed by Seven’s 1% Club. It was a particularly quiet week for 10, with Dessert Masters best in show.

ABC’s Australian Story bucked the trend, winning its slot and finishing as best for ABC across the week.

  1. I caught the 2021 repeats of the Back Side of TV this week and it surprised me how cutting and perceptive was his observations about TV over the long arch of history. It was Media Watch done with comedy, but his analysis was pretty spot on, especially about the fascination and trauma often associated with crime TV on people immediately affected and the general public. I didn’t recognise this the first time around, but it hit me so clearly the second time around.
