Seven has snatched a ratings week from Nine despite an audience of 2.1m for State of Origin.
Seven saw House Rules reach a season high against stiff competition, only to go higher the night after, while Nine’s primetime schedule is under-performing without a stripped reality show (that will all change next week).
TEN’s MasterChef continues to drive good business along while FIFA World Cup draws viewers to SBS once more.
