Nine resorted to three Big Bang repeats from 7:30 – 9pm last night, presumably waiting until House Rules is over before The Block returns. Next week Seven has some lightweight factuals to fill the gaps before X Factor launches, no doubt avoiding head to head tussles with The Voice.
As a result Seven network won the night easily with 36.6% then Nine 24.4%, TEN 19.7%, ABC 15.8% and SBS 3.5%.
House Rules topped the night for Seven at 1.52m then Seven News (1.2m / 1.07m), Home and Away (871,000), The Goldbergs (595,000 / 473,000) and Million Dollar Minute (578,000) in which a contestant turned down $200,000.
Nine News (1.1m / 1.09m) led for Nine then A Current Affair (917,000), The Big Bang Theory (794,000 / 776,000 / 698,000), Hot Seat (651,000) and CSI (538,000 / 357,000).
TEN’s MasterChef and Offspring combo pulled 896,000 / 746,000 respectively followed by TEN Eyewitness News (651,000), The Project (614,000 / 376,000). Modern Family and The Good Wife managed 346,000 and 341,000 respectively.
ABC News (792,000) still tops ABC1 then 7:30 (679,000), QI (539,000 / 401,000), Stop at Nothing: The Lance Armstrong Story (484,000) and Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery just 182,000.
Non primetime FIFA World Cup numbers were best for SBS ONE at 303,000 for Post Match: Bel v USA, Morning News 257,000, Bel v USA match 221,000. In primetime Walking Through History was best at 218,000.
