The Seven Network had a narrow win on a closely fought Wednesday. It was the network’s second straight win though Nine still leads the week 26.8% to Seven’s 25.7%.
Seven increased its share from the previous week mainly at the expense of Network 10 that was down 2 share points. Nine was the winner in the two biggest markets of Sydney and Melbourne while Seven won elsewhere.
It was, however, 10 that won the key demo groups. In 25-54 10 had 28.9% ahead of second placed Nine with 25.1% while Seven had 24.8%. In 16-39 10 was ahead with 32.2% from Seven (26.0%) and Nine (21.6%).
There was a notable drop week-on-week for the 6pm news bulletins. MasterChef was again dominant at 7.30 despite a 30,000 drop from the previous week. Doctor, Doctor also lost audience while Britain’s Got Talent recovered after dipping last week.
Later The Weekly (591,000) won its timeslot ahead of Paramedics (455,000), a second episode of Britain’s Got Talent (444,000) and The Secrets She Keeps on 388,000, down from 399,000 last week.
MasterChef and The Project took out the top two places in all three key demo groups.
