So how did the returns go last night? Well one return omitted yesterday was Hamish and Andy’s Asia Gap Year –– this time they are in Asia, and it dominated the night for Nine with  2.231 million national/ 1.566 million metro/ 665,000 regional viewers. It’s not so much a returning program, more a perennial, watered-once-a year by Nine with some cash and the dynamic duo produce a funny show that claims the highly prized 16-to-49 demographic. With The Block helping with 2.130 million national/ 1.485 million metro/ 645,000 regional viewers, Nine had a solid win last night that was bigger than it appeared on paper — it won the main channels in metro marts by nearly 9 percentage points from a weak Seven.

Nine won Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, but not Adelaide and Perth where Seven got home. But even there was closer than on Sunday night. In regional markets. Nine also had a solid win in regional markets.
