Having the NRL Grand Final in primetime helped Nine to win only its 4th ratings week of the year.
The match won by the Sydney Roosters pulled an impressive 2.13m metro viewers. Despite the AFL Grand Final at 2.6m arvo viewers in the previous week, Seven benefited less with its primetime share.
Last week TEN drew up to 1.24m viewers for a controversial Bachelor finale, and claimed Thursday night in the process.
SBS series Go Back to Where You Came From Live did little to lift SBS, drawing 233,ooo as its highest audience on Tuesday.
