“‘O’ Week” rules, but Seven takes the win.

By David Knox on January 23, 2011 / Filed Under News 9

Oprah Winfrey’s Australian Adventures dominated Week 4 of viewing, pulling as many as 1.82m viewers with her video postcards.

Nine’s One Day Cricket also scored, as high as 1.77m for Nine. But although the highest average for the Australian Open was 1.05m, the games have given Seven enough eyeballs across longer periods -and enough to win the week.

The ratings leader changed several times across the week with Nine in front after Friday night, but a massive win to Seven on Saturday saw the network take the title.

In multichannels the first full week for ELEVEN has been quite strong, finishing third overall and topping the night on Tuesday. 7TWO was best for the week, including a 7.0% share on Monday -ahead of both SBS channels combined.

Network:
Seven: 30.9
Nine: 30.2
TEN: 19.7
ABC: 13.7
SBS: 5.5

Primary Channel:
Seven: 22.6
Nine: 22.4
TEN: 15.1
ABC1: 10.6
SBS1: 4.8

Digital channel:
7TWO: 4.7
GO!: 4.6
ELEVEN: 3.9
7mate: 3.6
GEM: 3.3
ABC2: 1.8
ABC News 24: 0.7
One: 0.7
SBS2: 0.7
ABC3: 0.6

Nine won 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54.

Seven won Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Nine took Sunday and Friday. TEN beat Nine on Thursday but the ABC beat TEN on Saturday.

Seven was victorious in all cities except Sydney, which fell to Nine.

    Always Network. Seven in Adelaide: 31.8. Nine: 30.9.

  2. jay jay January 23, 2011 at 10:07 pm -

    total people primetime it did. 9: 22.7% to 7: 22.4%. I’m not sure when you write 7 won all markets except Sydney if you are talking about primary channels or combined.

  3. David Knox January 23, 2011 at 8:09 pm -

    Not this week it didn’t.

  4. jay jay January 23, 2011 at 7:03 pm -

    9 won in adelaide

  5. Craig January 23, 2011 at 4:11 pm -

    Bit of a shame TEN didn’t hold off Oprah until next week but then fans would be crying fowl that it’s not being fast tracked.

  6. davis January 23, 2011 at 4:05 pm -

    Heh. Oprah: one the the few things that can rate higher in Sydney than Melbourne. I wonder why that could be….

  7. owl January 23, 2011 at 3:46 pm -

    The continuing demise of SBS seems to be a major problem, surely this will need to be addressed soon.

  8. Tbone23 January 23, 2011 at 2:01 pm -

    I think Oprah/Ten will score big Sunday with the last Oprah show & the movie Australia.

  9. Knowfirst January 23, 2011 at 11:17 am -

    Mate did you have a big night? Where’s GEM in that list? ;)
