• The return of a new season of Australian Ninja Warrior was key to Nine’s primary channel win

Seven ended its primary channel winning streak last week, but there wasn’t much in it. Nine was just 0.2 of a point ahead of Seven in primary channel share, but Seven managed to win as #1 network, keeping its network winning streak intact for an eighth consecutive week.

The return of a new season of Australian Ninja Warrior was key to Nine’s primary channel win with the show launching with over 1m a week ago.

Farmer Wants a Wife and AFL kept Seven positioned as the #1 network. But no local reality franchise on Tuesday was the difference between a primary channel win and second place. An extra dose of rural love from Farmer Wants a Wife might have sealed the deal. However we continue to acknowledge Seven’s almost biblical ratings resurrection after many had written the channel, the network, and even the business, off this year.
Too much AFL is never enough with four successive primetime games from Wednesday to Saturday giving Seven four consecutive winning nights.
