Nine News had a rare, though narrow, win at 6pm last night as COVID-19 developments saw Nine’s Melbourne bulletin record its second highest rating so far this year.
Meanwhile 10 News First in Melbourne posted its highest audience of 2020 while for Seven it was the third highest audience in Melbourne for 2020. ABC News was on par with its usual audience, however.
Seven just scraped through with a win overall as Nine’s share improved from the previous week. 10 was also up slightly while SBS hit double digits. Nine won along the east coast as usual with Seven wining in Adelaide and Perth. For the third consecutive night, Seven ranked third in Melbourne. However, it was 10 that won the key younger demographic groups.
In the 25-54, 10 had a 28.7% share, Seven was on 27.4%, Nine 24.7%, ABC 12.4% and SBS 6.8%.
In 16-39, 10 had 31.6%, Seven had 28.9%, Nine 22.9%, ABC 11.2% and SBS 5.5%.
MasterChef was the top entertainment show last night recording its largest audience for three weeks. Next best at 7.30pm was Big Brother, that was lower week-on-week. Also at 7.30, Nine’s Paramedics was up while SBS’s Who Do You Think You Are? made the top 20.
The first part of Joanna Lumley’s Hidden Caribbean series also did well for ABC.
