Seven won the main channels and total people thanks to a solid night for the news (1.77 million from 6-6.30pm) and House Rules (1.399 million). But it didn’t win the main demos -- that honour was Ten’s thanks to MasterChef with 1.13 million followed by Have You Been Paying Attention with 1.06 million. That meant more than a million viewers nationally for two hours of prime time for Ten. The ABC ran second with Four Corners averaging 957,000 nationally and Media Watch 885,000, easily in front of Nine’s hour of The Big Bang Theory (644,000 average from 8.45pm) and Seven’s First Dates Australia (707,000 nationally).

In regional markets a clean sweep for Seven with the 6pm News on top with 651,000 viewers, House Rules second with 548,000, then Seven News/Today Tonight with 543,000, Home and Away with 443,000 and the 5.30 pm bit of The Chase Australiawas with 438,000.
