The winning continues for Seven in week 44, with the most watched main channel, most watched digital channel and most watched HD channel – and therefore the most watched network.

This week, we present two free to air top 20′s for the week. The first is the “raw” top 20 listing all 20 highest rating programs – regardless of how often different days and timeslots cuase them to appear in the chart, followed by the top 20 individual shows – this top 20 only allows each show to appear once – with only the highest rating day / episode listed for each show.

Top 20 by everything for the week.
Here is the “raw” top 20 for the week – which lists the highest raiting shows of the week, including individual days they air. The result is high performing reality and news shows can end up being listed many times if they air on multiple nights, resulting in an overview of what was watched by the most people and on what day.

Top 20 by peak episode for the week.
Each show is only allowed to appear once. Only the highest rating occurance of any show will be listed – no matter how the networks code them. This allows for a better comparison of how shows are performing against each other, without being cluttered by multiple coded entries of the same show (Specifically referring to Celebrity Apprentice here!). Note also, only the highest rating night of news will be listed, regardless of night of week it falls on.
