TV ratings Megaweek: A win for Nine

The biggest ratings week of the year has ended with victory for Nine.

The combination of the debut of Underbelly 3, the retun of Hey Hey It’s Saturday and former SBS franchise Top Gear was enough to beat off the challenge from Seven’s new show The Pacific and the revamped Australia’s Got Talent.  

Nine’s metro share for the week was 27.5% to Seven’s 25.8%, based on preliminary figures from OzTam.

The battle is set to become more of a three-way tussle from Monday night when Ten’s Masterchef rejoins the fray.

Last week’s station share:

  • Nine 27.5%
  • Seven 25.8%
  • Ten 17.6%
  • ABC 13.7%
  • SBS 4.9%

(List doesn’t include digital channels)

As well as the Total People demographic, Nine also won in 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54.
