  1. Fantastic numbers for 7News Melbourne last night – doubtless the preceding big AFL game had quite an effect but even so… Mitch, Tim and Jane are a very strong line up in my view.

      1. Thanks for input. The story is about Monday ratings as indicated, and the copy clearly states it was a boost from AFL. Seven News was a 2019 high so I have no qualms with it leading the copy. The race has tightened in Melbourne overall.
