Love is in the air, but Seven wins Wednesday.

Couples were declaring their love on Reality TV last night, but Seven's soap came out in front.

Love was in the air on Wednesday night with couples declaring their affections on both Love Island and The Bachelorette.

On both shows couples discussed whether they would consider relocating cities to be with their partners. While all of the Love Island couples agreed they would do just that, it resulted in a split on The Bachelorette. Awww.

But it was Home & Away that led in entertainment at 548,000 / 492,000 metro viewers.

Hard Quiz drew 522,000 then 7:30 (460,000), Mega Zoo (373,000), The Bachelorette (332,000) and Scotland’s Sacred Islands with Ben Fogle (186,000).

Later Gruen led with 539,000 then Code 1: Minute by Minute (363,000), Emergency (293,000) and Bull (200,000).

Seven network won Wednesday with 30.1% then Nine 28.0%, ABC 17.3%, 10 16.0% and SBS 8.6%.

Seven News was #1 at 917,000 / 910,000 for Seven. The Chase drew 473,000 / 300,000. America’s Got Talent managed 145,000.

Nine News was best for Nine at 813,000 / 806,000. A Current Affair won its slot at 621,000 then Hot Seat (398,000 / 271,000). Love Island wrapped at just 141,000 but remains a force in BVOD viewing.

ABC News pulled 585,000. Preppers (153,000), The Drum (141,000) and QI (134,000) followed.

  1. Lie With Me deserved much better. Channel 10 produce so little drama (OK, zero, Neighbours aside) so I like to watch it, even if it doesn’t mean anything. It was far superior to The Secrets She Keeps, which I watched, frustratingly, for it’s entire run, only to be baffled to see it green-lit for a second series.

  2. Hard Quiz was the biggest drawcard of the night for me. It was interesting seeing people with highly specialised knowledge on topics, such as Western Australian railways and Midnight Oil. I wonder if Hard Quiz would rate better at 8:30 instead of 8:00 considering that many shows on the other channels at that time take up the entire 7:30 – 8:30 time slot and viewers aren’t likely to switch channels mid way into a show.
