With MAFS (1.70 million nationally) and Travel Guides (1.04 million nationally) it was Nine’s night again from Seven, the ABC and a still weak Ten. 

Seven’s 6pm News got 1.46 million nationally and Nine’s 6pm News got 1.10 million. That 361,000 gap will be a continuing problem for Nine and its regional partner, Southern Cross. MAFS rival MKR, on 1.11 million nationally, has a gap for Seven to worry about. Meanwhile, Nine’s Today had 275,000 nationally and 190,000 in the metros; up on the Monday public holiday. Sunrise was steady on 451,000 nationally and 266,000 in the metros. Nine’s heartbeat better get a little quicker — is recovery being whispered about?

In the regions its Seven’s 6pm News with 510,000, then Seven News/Today Tonight with 496,000, followed by MAFS with 464,000, MKR on 385,000 and the 5.30pm part of The Chase Australia on 338,000. —
