Mad As Hell was the best half-hour on Aussie TV last night, although Ten did better than expected.

Seven’s night, in a closeish one. Nine was next, the ABC third and a very close Ten fourth overall. It wasn’t as close in the main channels. In regional markets it wasn’t as close with Seven a clear winner, from Nine, and daylight between the ABC and Ten, whose main channel share was 7.7%, against 9.6% in metro markets, which tells the story about how the network is perceived in the regionals.

My Kitchen Rules led the night, with Nine’s The Block having another solid night with 1.884 million national/ 1.293 million metro/ 591,000 regional viewers. Ten’s fourth spot wasn’t a surprise, what is how they are being rated by various audiences. Ten is on the nose in Sydney and Melbourne, and doing better than the ABC at times in Brisbane, and especially Adelaide and Perth. That’s similar to Seven at the moment (strong in Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth) and not so strong in Melbourne and line ball to slightly stronger in Sydney. Ten’s Puberty Blues did Ok in metro markets, but not so well in the regionals.
