Seven, Ten, the ABC and SBS were all left behind by Nine and MAFS last night, which had 1.33 million nationally (including 1.00 million in the metros). Nine’s night in total people, main channels and the demos, end of story. Seven’s Big Bash game had an average of 657,000 for both sessions. Nine’s New Amsterdam had 697,000 nationally, down from 815,000 on Wednesday — as expected it lost viewers. I’m A Celebrity brought in 899,000 — solid figures for a Thursday night, as were the figures for MAFS.

Nine has repeats of MAFS from 7.30pm tonight to 1.30am tomorrow. Hopefully A Current Affair from 7pm is live! 

In regional markets it was Seven’s 6pm News with 517,000, then Seven News/Today Tonight with 501,000, MAFS with 333,000, the 7pm ABC News with 326,000, and the 5.30pm part of The Chase Australia with 317,000.
