My Kitchen Rules strong week for Seven

By David Knox on March 21, 2010 / Filed Under News 12

A runaway Seven has dominated Week 12 taking the week in ratings share, demos, #1 show, cities, nightly wins and even managing 8 of the Top 10 titles. Nine and TEN landed just one each in the Top 10.

The Seven Network won with a 31.1% share ahead of Nine’s 28.3% and TEN’s 19.8%. ABC had 15.7% and SBS 5.0%.

Seven also won all 3 key demos: 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54.

In digital channels GO! and 7TWO tied on 3.3%, ABC2 1.3%, ONE 2.0%, ABC3 0.5% and SBS TWO 0.4%.

Seven won every night of the week except Thursday, which fell to Nine. ABC defeated Nine and TEN on Saturday aided by its dedicated election coverage in South Australia.

Seven also won the week in all five cities.

#1 show for the week was My Kitchen Rules on 1.56m.

This is the final week of survey ratings before 2 weeks of Easter non-ratings.

    David, Are you able to publish nationwide numbers as well as the 5 city numbers? These only cover roughly half the country. Even if it’s only the weekly top100 I’m sure it would be of interest to many of your readers.

    @ darryn – TEN are no where near bankruptcy..

  3. darryn March 21, 2010 at 7:59 pm -

    Ten’s only hope is to abandon this stupid approach of aiming at one demographic in a country where no demographic alone can carry any channel. hello people, there are only around 5-7 million homes, only around 25 million people. Yes each channel is stronger in certain demo’s than others, but 7 and 9 try to reach them all, but acknowledge their strengths. But what was a strength for ten isn’t even that anymore, they have nothing to keep the average person returning to there network. The heirachy at 10 need to go, the lot of them and new people who have a broader understanding to be put in place, because being thumped by the ABC to the tune of 11% should be sending earthquakes through the whole channel 10 network.

    As for the 7pm project, my understanding is the bottom line is what is keeping it on. What ten would need to payout to dump the 7pm project is not available as it is bordering on bankruptcy as it is.

    Please take note Michael Healy and David Gyngell – this is what the rest of your year looks like. Nine has nothing on offer that appeals to women so the whole network feels blokey and so old fashioned it’s embarassing. Bert hosting the Logies? Blonde bimbos in too-tight, too revealing clothes. It’s so down-market, who wants to be associated with that? LAC – are you kidding? Note to Eddie Maguire you can be seen in casual clothes, wegeddit- boy from the Western suburbs has made it to Toorak. Can’t you do brekky radio in in jeans like the rest of your generation?

    Ten’s big hope for a resurgence surely must be the return of MasterChef.

    Ten need to get the 3rd channel up and going, they have so much content that could be played on it

  7. David Knox March 21, 2010 at 1:49 pm -

    It does not.

  8. Ron March 21, 2010 at 1:47 pm -

    Just a quick question: does the top 100 include timeshifted figures, or are they still to be calculated?

    One will add some muscle to 10. The AFL and the F1 seasons will start to take effect. I don’t think 10 will win the ratings but a few extra % points won’t hurt them.

    My Kitchen rules is replaced by a special episode of Border Security and the Force….. boring !

    It will be interesting to see if ONEHDs percentage goes up when the AFL starts.
