MAFS had 1.52 million and Doctor, Doctor had 837,000, so it was Nine’s night from Seven, the ABC and Ten. But once again the ABC ran second in prime time from 7pm behind Nine.

The 7pm ABC News won the 7pm slot with 1 million, 7.30 was second in that slot (behind MAFS) with 894,000, Hard Quiz at 8pm had 883,000 and was also second, and Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell averaged 860,000 and ran second nationally.

Seven’s MKR was well-beaten with 730,000 from 7.30pm to 9pm and Ten’s Australian Survivor All Stars could only manage 745,000 from 7.30pm to 8.30pm.
