Nine has won the penultimate week of survey for the year – taking top spot in both primary and combined channel share. Nine managed to win six nights of the week in primary share.
Nine’s best share of the week was for Sunday with 22.7% thanks in part to the launch episode of Hamish & Andy’s Perfect Holiday with 885,000 watching making it the #3 show of the week.
Also performing well were Seven Worlds, One Planet and A Current Affair.
Seven took second place in both primary and combined channel share. It was a close race in the latter with Nine winning on 28.8% with Seven on 28.6%.
Seven is able to claim the most-watched multichannel with 7mate on 4.3%. The biggest 7mate audience tuned in for Fat Pizza: Back in Business with 211,000.
Seven’s winners during the week included Seven News, Better Homes and Gardens and The Good Doctor. Sunrise again cleaned up all week and Seven’s coverage of the First Test between Australia and Pakistan saw the third session on Saturday make the top 20 programs of the week.
