A big night for Seven with the House Rules reveal episode winning the night and powering the network to a win. In fact, going on last night’s figures The Voice is now only a night-winning hit in Sydney and Melbourne. Seven easily won Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and the regionals. The Voice is slowly being marginalised by House Rules and Revenge, even though it’s a faded hit, is helping Seven later on Monday nights.  House Rules ended with 2.666 million national/ 1.651 million metro/ 1.015 million regional viewers, while The Voice managed 2.135 million national/ 1.575 million metro/ 560,000 regional viewers. The viewing tastes of metro and regional viewers can be seen in those figures. Seven is capitalising on that success by calling for entrants in the 2015 series from today.

As a sign of Nine’s desperation to help arrest the slide it ran The Voice and then it started a repeat of The Big Bang Theory, which won the slot. That wasn’t enough. House Rules ended at 9.15 whenRevenge started. House Rules still won the 7.30 time slot, narrowly in metro markets and by a big margin in the regions and in Brisbane (100,000 viewers), Adelaide (18,000) and Perth (136,000).
