House Rules managed its very first win against The Voice this season, toppling the Nine talent show 1.03m to 989,000. The win was thanks to larger Seven audiences in Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

MasterChef Australia‘s highly-promoted “floating ice-cream” was in close behind with 936,000, a lift on last week.

Have You Been Paying Attention? again won the 8:30 slot -save for earlier overruns- with 859,000 and topped the demos once more. It led Seven Year Switch and Four Corners.

  1. Footy Classified was promoted as starting at 10pm. The fetch epg said it was scheduled to start at 10.09pm but it didn’t start till 10.10pm. Its on far too late and the different start time every week is annoying. After you’ve listened to some podcasts, radio, talking footy (its more watchable since sam mcclure does the whole show and it has the same start time every week,) what’s left to hear about on footy classified?

      1. Not bothered about the 1 minute difference between epg and start time just wanted to accurately depict how footy classified aired last night. Main point is footy classified is on far too late with a wide ranging start time. I know viewers who have given up on the show because its on too late and the start time is way too variable. I watched 5 minutes of it the last couple of weeks because it was the same stuff I’d already heard. It gets to a point where it doesn’t matter it they are different or better then the others when they are last to it.

      1. We only caught up to the US the last couple of weeks. Before that we were behind. The return after the mid season final was January. The ideal situation would be to air single episodes the same week as the US instead of delaying around two months, subjecting viewers to spoilers and burning it off in double episodes. I suspect it was a lucky coincidence that we caught up, nothing to do with channel 7.

  2. You don’t see House Rules beating The Voice (nor MasterChef) very often.

    Seven would be very happy with its performance in recent couple of weeks.

    Close in demos to MasterChef too.

    Nine the biggest loser.

  3. Plain & simple, 9:45pm is too late to start watching for Prison Break, 9pm maybe but come 930 bed is calling, we stayed up for the 1st ep, which tbh, was disappointing, didn’t bother last night, can see this disappearing into the nether in 2 weeks
