Ratings season officially kicked off this week, and it appears Nine has found a winning formula in its content slate.
Though the Australian Open broadcast outside of the official ratings period, since the start of the year, Nine has been pulling more than decent audience views and shares.
MAFS continues to dominate, last night reaching 1.109m according to OzTAM metro numbers. Paramedics also had a solid debut as 678,000 Aussies tuned in.
That’s not to say 10 isn’t holding its own. It came in second last night across key demos (25-54 and 16-39). Seven is still working to find its feet, however. But it’s early days, and still anyone’s game.
Last night’s best show for 10 was Survivor (612,000), and over at Seven, The Chase pulled decent numbers too (524,000).
Here’s how the rest of the night ran.
News did 845,000, ACA did 761,000 and Hot Seat did 450,000.
The Project did a decent 500,000, and 10 News First 355,000.
News did 988,000, Home And Away did 641,000 and MKR did 455,000.
ABC & SBS
Over at the ABC, news did 657,000, 7.30 did 478,000 and Griff’s Great Australian Rail Trip did 477,000. At SBS, Great Australian Railway Journeys did 376,000.
