The game was looking a little tighter last week with Seven marginally ahead of Nine by the end of Friday night. But a strong win on Saturday night helped them seal the week. Thank you Indiana Jones…
Nine’s poor showing with Parade’s End impacted on them losing the week, however the consolation prize was Nine walking away with the demos, 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54.
Not much good news for TEN, only managing to beat ABC on 1 night, Sunday.
SBS ONE: 3.9
ABC News 24: 1.1
