Week 23 TV: Nine wins six nights with The Voice, NRL again key
The Voice was again key to Nine’s win this week with the channel ranking #1 all people in primary and network share on six nights across the week. The NRL gave Nine stations in Sydney and Brisbane a lift on Thursday and Friday.
Seven Week 23
Seven News continued to rank #1 in its timeslot at 6pm across seven nights of the week. Similarly Sunrise was again the leader albeit with its average weekday audience down to 281,000. The gap between Seven’s breakfast product and Nine’s is still substantial, although the gap narrowed week-on-week from 87,000 to 58,000.
In primetime it is hard to find any other timeslot winners. Seven’s best result at 7.30pm was the penultimate Sunday of House Rules: High Stakes with audiences of 605,000 and 597,000 watching a double episode. Will we be able to summarise three nights of improved 7.30pm audiences next week as Big Brother takes over the key timeslot?
