Game, set, match for Seven in Week 5.

By David Knox on January 30, 2011 / Filed Under News 11

Sport dominated Week 5 as Seven’s Australian Open and Nine’s One Day International cricket battled it out for viewers.

It was Nine News Sunday that pulled the biggest audience of the week at 1.72m viewers, aided by its cricket broadcast, but the blanket coverage of the tennis ensured that Seven won the week, with the best audience reserved for the Women’s Final. 1.67m watched Clijsters defeat Li adding to a whopping 42.3% share for Saturday night.

    Last year, we were watching the Australian Open in Singapore and their coverage was excellent. Live coverage on ESPN STAR SPORTS was commercial-free, especially Lleyton Hewitt’s first round match against a little-known Brazillian, shown at 4.30pm SIN time, when Perth viewers got to see it after the match was finished. It was much better than Seven’s, but when I returned, I have to put up with delayed coverage on Seven.

  2. Bella January 31, 2011 at 12:55 pm -

    Not a major tennis fan, but still annoyed that Seven doesn’t show the finals live in Perth. The Hopam Cup sent a tweet to the Australain Open asking where people in WA can watch the game live as they had quite a few people asking.

    I like ONEHD but I do have to keep reminding myself to check the guide to see if there is anything of interest on. If somehow they could promote some of the sports more that would help me to remember!

  3. Victor January 31, 2011 at 12:04 am -

    One final whinge for Seven’s coverage. They’re showing the men’s singles final when the game itself is all over with Novak Djokovic winning in straight sets. Bring the rights to ONE/TEN or even ABC where ABC2 can show non-finals matches while ABC1 can show the men’s and women’s final live and commercial-free and they’ll do a terrific job than Seven.

  4. Geoff January 30, 2011 at 10:10 pm -

    @ Owl, how does ranking 4th & 8th overall for the week and leading Channel 9 to it’s only two “nightly” wins of the week a sign that people don’t care about the cricket?

    Channel 10 would Kill for figures as good as the cricket is pulling in.

  5. Kev January 30, 2011 at 9:05 pm -

    The fact that ONE HD rates less than ABC3 must be concerning for Ten.

  6. A. January 30, 2011 at 5:57 pm -

    @ Jay Jay

    I can’t say what will happen to Eleven and Masterchef. But for myself I’ll still be watching. The only thing that’ll mess that up is usually Sunday and Smallville when Poirot or the like including Sherlock is on. Which includes tonight. But I have said that Sunday was a bad decision. Unless they repeated them. Oh well DVDs it is then.

    @ owl

    I’ll admit I knew the tennis and the cricket were on but was happy to watch something else on one of those multi-channels.

  7. steven guy January 30, 2011 at 5:35 pm -

    ONE is an dog with fleas, yes I know it’s a sports chanel but it needs a shake up. It’s a waste of HD and could be used for a few movies a week !

  8. Arthur January 30, 2011 at 5:04 pm -

    No more tennis, no more having to hear “Ă„ussie Kim”. How desperate are we calling a foriegner an aussie. Do other countries do this?

  9. owl January 30, 2011 at 4:13 pm -

    Maybe these figures can be used to show that all Australians aren’t mad about cricket, and don’t obsess with the goings on of the players (and ex-players) as much as the media apparently think. I didn’t even realise that the cricket was on – thanks to the fact that we now have choice through the multi-channels

  10. Jay Jay January 30, 2011 at 3:38 pm -

    Interesting figures with the multi-channels. They are fairly close. Everyone was expecting 11 to be miles ahead but doesn’t look like that will happen. It will be interesting to see what happens to 11’s numbers when Masterchef is on.

  11. Jerome January 30, 2011 at 11:31 am -

    Not to be a PC drag but i think it should be Clijsters d LI.

    Na is the equivalent of what most Australians see as a first name.
