If Seven’s 6pm news bulletin beats Nine tonight in Sydney then it will have scored a rare Monday to Friday win over its rival in the country’s most competitive TV market, in the most competitive timeslot and in the most competitive part of the business — network news. This may sound like a side show, a non-event, but it isn’t. Sydney is HQ for the media companies and networks, it is the biggest revenue market by far and it dominates network thinking and ad selling. And with Seven’s share price slowly sinking, and Nine’s on the rise, this week’s performance is a rare ray of light for Seven towards the end of a bad year.
