TV Week 15: Q1 results in – Nine well ahead at Easter break

After narrowly winning week 14, Seven has been unable to repeat the performance in week 15.

Nine has won another week making the champ on all weeks of survey prior to Easter except for week 14 when Seven narrowly won.

Driving the strong start to the year of course was Married At First Sight, which only screened twice last week, but with an average audience of 1.9m, those two episode pushed share high enough for Nine to win the week, despite Seven winning the last five nights of the week.

Also performing strongly for Nine last week was News plus 60 Minutes, which had an average audience over 1m.

The Big Bang Theory started its final season on Tuesday with 561,000, while Bad Mothers finished its season on Monday with 558,000.

After narrowly winning week 14, Seven has been unable to repeat the performance in week 15. The week 14 primary share of 22.5% was its best survey result so far this year.

Key timeslots in week 15 again performed well with Seven News, The Chase and Sunrise all winning again.

Seven’s most-watched program after News, My Kitchen Rules and Home And Away, was the final race of Winx on Saturday afternoon when the metro audience was 577,000.

10 wasn’t able to record a share above 10%, but the primary channel did have its best numbers in five weeks, while combined channel share was the equal best in five weeks.

The channel was celebrating the return of Bachelor In Paradise, which has launched as the #1 show under 50. 10 also noted its strong BVOD numbers with the first three episodes attracting over 100,000 additional viewers. Live streams were up 36% YOY.

The final episode of this season of Gogglebox also performed well winning its timeslot on Thursday night.

The re-branded 10 Bold continues to perform well when looking at YOY performance. The multichannel has now had 11 consecutive weeks of YOY growth.

10 Play had its biggest week of the year with Bachelor In Paradise the key driver with help from Dancing With The Stars and Gogglebox.
