In saying that, the gap in Melbourne has dramatically reduced. Sunrise resent downfall could be playing a part. Rebecca Madden also on holidays.

Week 31 2021

It was not a good week for Seven News with Nine edging quite close. If fact, it was Seven’s lowest rated week of the year. All markets lost ground but it was the east coast that contributed most to the 40,000 drop from week 30. Friday’s bulletin was the lowest rated weekday Seven News of 2022.

For Nine, Sydney was the stand out performer accounting for almost all of the 23,000 increase and now at 21 weeks won it has won the year by that metric. Nine Melbourne was notable for wins in both half hours this week.

9 will no doubt win 2022 in Brisbane, but 7 need to start rebuilding. Unfortunately I can’t see it improving until they address the 7pm timeslot.

So is Seven Melbourne only a few weeks off from taking the year?

I believe 2011 was the last year Seven won this market.

Seven won Melbourne in ratings weeks in 2019, but Nine barely won 52-weeks (non-rating + rating)
