Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f9a34de9f38>

A post 7.30pm schedule devoted to ABBA saw Nine’s main channel number one for Tuesday, but Seven’s three multichannels outrated Nine’s four to see Seven win on network shares. Seven’s won the Sydney, Adelaide and Perth markets while Nine was number one in Adelaide and Brisbane.

It was 10, however, that topped the key advertising groups with Nine second. In 25-54, 10 averaged 29.8% across the 5 cities with Nine on 25.4%, Seven 23.8%, ABC 13.6% and SBS 7.4%. In 16-39, 10’s share lifted to 32.5% well clear of Nine (23.7%), Seven (23.2%), ABC (14.5%) and SBS (6.1%).

MasterChef with just short of one million viewers, The Project at 7pm and How To Stay Married were keys to 10’s demographic success, all timeslot winners in the key demo groups.

Nine’s ABBA: Here We Go Again (476,000) and Seven’s Border Security (475,000) were neck and neck at 7.30pm. They faced tough competition from the season premiere of Who Do You Think You Are? on SBS that was up on the 2019 season opener with 417,000.

Seven’s The Force Behind The Line saw Seven slip to 4th at 8pm with 392,000 while Nine’s movie Mama Mia Here We Go Again later had 338,000. That was ahead of Seven’s Absentia premiere episode that had 337,000 while episode two had just 293,000.

Meanwhile, ABC’s premiere Miriam Margolyes Almost Australian later did well with 573,000.
