Seven’s night in a lacklustre exhibition of TV. Seven won metro markets and the main channels, but Nine won the regionals overall.

House Rules (2.249 million national/ 1.402 million metro/ 867,000 regional viewers) dominated, But Nine’s fresh (1.999 million national viewers) and repeat episodes (1.751 million national viewers) of The Big Bang Theory helping it keep in touch. Ten was a solid third and the ABC a weak fourth (back to pre-2012 levels). The Beatles visit 50 year doco had 829,000 national/ 607,000 metro/ 232,000 regional viewers. Not nearly as many as the Abba visit doco from last year (which had 942,000 metro and 1.4 million national viewers)
