It was Seven’s night as Nine again ran out of puff (its program vault must be empty, given Nine is unable to present a competitive line up for Seven and its wounded hero, My Kitchen Rules on Wednesday nights). Seven last night won the metros and regions rather easily, especially compared to the problems it had on Sunday through Tuesday nights when Nine runs Married at First Sight (especially in the metros).

Million Dollar Cold Cases  which cracked a million or so national viewers at 9pm and provided the cream to a big win, especially in the main channels. MKR managed more than 1.6 million national viewers, MDCC 1.006 million. MDCC is a a new sub genre of TV where, to goose up the ratings of the old cold case, greatest crimes etc types of programs, cash is offered, a bit like the cash cow on Seven’s Sunrise and the cash call on Today. Next, ‘Spot the spilt milk on MKR, you can win thousands’?
