Australian Open Wins For Nine
By Jay Stuart | January 21, 2019
Coverage of the Australian Open pushed Nine Network, which got the domestic tournament rights this year, to victory in the overall ratings in Australia for the week ending January 19.
In the key 25-54 demographic, Nine also won in audience share with 22.2%, while Seven (previously the Open broadcaster) had 15.9% and Ten (home of top-rated I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here) pulled 17.3%.
On January 18, 830,000 viewers in the five metro markets tuned in Nine to see Rafael Nadal defeat Australian Alex de Minaur.
