But Nine has again won the Demos, for the second year running. Nine has also closed the gap with Seven in Total People, compared to 2012.
But the real story is ABC snatching third place from TEN in Total People.

Seven’s Director of Programming, Angus Ross said: “Seven’s depth and consistency of programming has resulted in a seventh year of being number one and record shares in 16-39s, 18-49s and 25-54s.
“We’re immensely proud of having Australia’s number one television event – My Kitchen Rules, the number one talent show event The X Factor, the number one Australian drama A Place to Call Home and the number one new drama The Blacklist. The successful launch of House Rules this year combined with our growing tent poles My Kitchen Rules and X Factor puts us in an even stronger position for 2014,” Mr Ross said.
Commenting, CEO of Seven West Media, Tim Worner, said: “It’s another year where our guys in television have absolutely nailed the strategy. Seven has met the twin aims of not only having the biggest number of big programs but also having them spread across the year. It’s that mantra of depth and consistency, that’s what our advertising partners tell us they want and that’s what we will keep on delivering them.
“Sure we’re number one again, but it’s the way we’re doing it and the way we’re going to keep doing it that is the key. This time of the year we always hear how this network is leading in that and this other network is leading in this. No asterisks on our performance. The fact is there is only one number one network in Australia. And that is Seven.”
Michael Healy, Director of Television with the Nine Network said: “2013 has been an extraordinary year for The Nine Network. With the most dynamic and exciting programming lineup we have delivered wins across all key demographics under 65, posting strong audience gains year on year. This is a testament to our on air talent, management team and staff. We move into 2014 with a jam-packed slate featuring Australia’s most popular programs underpinned by Australia’s number one news and public affairs brands.”
Darren Wick, Director of News and Current Affairs with the Nine Network said: “Channel Nine is an awesome news and current affairs machine to watch in action and I’m privileged to have a ringside seat. I’m incredibly proud of our people and personally thrilled at the level of success they have achieved. Every news team, every program at Nine, houses a unique set of characters – but every single person here has a commitment to the team they work with, and a dedication to our audiences to provide stories, segments, interviews and interesting moments that are always relevant, engaging and informative. On these points, we are unwavering. We have worked hard to win back the trust of our audiences. We are determined to never take that for granted.”
Network Ten Chief Programming Officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “In mid-2013 we re-set TEN to focus on the key audience demographic of 25 to 54s. So far we are pleased with the growth we have seen in our new target audience.
“We will continue to focus on building this growth into 2014 and delivering on our promise to bring audiences premium content across all platforms,” she said.
“We are very excited about our summer line-up on TEN, including the KFC T20 Big Bash League which kicks off on December 20 and will be shown live, in prime time and on free-to air television for the first time.
“The KFC T20 Big Bash League leads straight into the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, and then our full program schedule for the first part of 2014 starts to roll out, including The Biggest Loser: Challenge Australia, So You Think You Can Dance Australia, Puberty Blues and Secrets & Lies.”
