Seven has now won 13 of the 40 ratings surveys in 2017.
But Nine will be pinning its hopes on State of Origin this week to try and claim its first win in Total People (it’s no guarantee). So far only The Last Resort has been its a major misstep, while TEN faltered with The Biggest Loser: Transformed before Easter.
Nine is also still in a close battle for the demos this year which it seeks to claim ahead of Total People.
Last week both Seven & Nine increased share at the expense of the 3 other networks.
7flix / ELEVEN: 2.4
News 24: 1.3
SBS VICELAND: 1.0
ABC ME / SBS Food Network: 0.8
Seven won 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54 demos.
