Seven rebounded last night after Nine took the lead on Sunday, thanks to its My Kitchen Rules and Downton Abbey combo. Drawing 838,000 at 9pm, the latter almost eclipsed everything else that was on offer on other networks at 7:30pm. Others will take comfort that the ending is now just a fortnight away.
Nine’s season premiere of Married at First Sight was third in its timeslot on 771,000, but the network has avoided the car-crash of Reno Rumble in the slot, which actually improved in its later slot.
All Star Family Feud lifted for TEN and Four Corners had a strong night on ABC.
Seven Network won with 32.2% then Nine 25.0%, ABC 20.0%, TEN 17.5% and SBS 5.3%.
My Kitchen Rules was #1 with 1.27m viewers for Seven then Seven News (1.09m / 1.03m), Downton Abbey (838,000), Home and Away (792,000), The Chase (665,000 / 449,000).

Four Corners (902,00) topped ABC’s night, something of a rarity. ABC News drew 869,000 then 7:30 (853,000), Australian Story (800,000), Media Watch (712,000) and Q&A (453,000).
