Australian-made television continues to dominate the ratings, with 19 of the top 20 shows last week being locally-produced progammes.
Whilst there were 2 international formats in the mix, the only overseas programme to rank in the top 20 was Mrs Browns Boys at #19. And there was only one more in the Top 30: Kevin’s Grand Design.
Seven won the battle again, this time taking out every night of the week.
ABC again defeated TEN but in a glimmer of news TEN defeated the public broadcaster on both Friday and Saturday, thanks largely to sport luring ABC viewers away.
ABC News 24: 0.9
SBS TWO: 0.8
Seven won 18-49 and 25-54. Nine won 16-39.
Seven won all cities except Sydney which fell to Nine.
