Nine may have ranked first in Primary channels last night but it couldn’t match Seven’s multichannels, which pushed it over the line for a win.
Seven won the news hour again while Home and Away ranked second in its slot. But it resorted to 90 minutes of The Force in order to push Kiss Bang Love to the very late time of 10:15pm (it originally debuted at 8:45pm). It managed a mere 137,000 in that slot.
While ACA won for Nine, Masterchef took the lead at 7:30pm and thereafter, NCIS with its best numbers since October 2014.
Seven Network won with 29.0% then Nine 25.0%, TEN 23.6%, ABC 15.3% and SBS 6.1%.
Seven News was #1 for Seven with 1.22m / 1.17m then House Rules (911,000), Home and Away (862,000), The Chase (737,000 / 460,000) and a marathon run of The Force (402,000). Kiss Bang Love sank even lower, now a dismal 137,000.
Nine News (1.07m / 1.01m) was best for Nine then A Current Affair (920,000), 20 to One (688,000), Britain’s Got Talent (628,000 -but a coding error will see it adjusted to 691k / 552k) and Hot Seat (594,000).
MasterChef Australia again won its slot with 1.05m for TEN. NCIS was 766,000, The Project drew 664,000 / 488,000, TEN Eyewitness News was 572,000 and NCIS: LA was 483,000 / 254,000.
