A Current Affair

Nine’s night, even though The Voice has lost around 150,000 to 200,000 viewers. Last night’s episode averaged 1.15 million nationally which was less than the 1.18 million people who had watched A Current Affair. 

Masterchef Australia (867,000) and House Rules (938,000) were not in the hunt. Seven’s News from 6 to 6.30pm with 1.80 million easily beat Nine News in the same slot by 490,000 people. School holidays have just started or start this week so viewing will be skewed — especially during the breakfast time slot where fewer people will be rushing off to school and work.

Ten again did well with Have You Been Paying Attention the best with 939,000. In regional markets it was Seven’s 6pm News with 631,000, then Seven News/Today Tonight with 556,000, The Chase Australia 5.30pm with 442,000, House Rules with 389,000 and Home and Away with 378,000
