No more sleeps to go until State of Origin game one tonight from Brisbane. Another night for Nine with The Voice — 1.37 million nationally — the most watched of the big budget non-news programs. Masterchef, 828,000 nationally and House Rules, 999,000. Seven’s 6pm News had 1.80 million, Nine’s had 1.32 million — a 486,000 winning margin for Seven. How long before Nine and Southern Cross start cutting costs? Nine won Sydney, Seven again won Melbourne and Brisbane the remaining markets (bar northern NSW).
