With the Grand final of House Rules, Seven was always going to win the night, which it did in the metros and in the regions. The ABC beat Ten in the regions again, reversing the pecking order of the metros. The rest of the week looks a bit bleak for Seven with Nine having the third and final State of Origin game on Wednesday night, although being a dead game with the result carrying no importance, the audience will be down on the record figures for the first two games of this year. Seven starts The X Factor next Sunday night, so The Voice’s final episodes and those of the The Voice Kids version will go head to head with the opening episodes of that mega hit. TV’s program grinder carries on regardless.
