Nine’s night as MAFS got 1.31 million nationally though the 6pm news dipped from the highs of Monday and Tuesday. The ABC had another solid night — 981,000 for the 7pm News, 915,000 for 7.30, 960,000 for Hard Quiz, 751,000 for The Weekly and 740,000 for Fisk. That made the ABC second on the night from 7pm after Nine.

More NRL and AFL tonight with two huuuuuge games: last year’s NRL grand final replay with Penrith v Melbourne (though both teams have their best players out with injury) while in the AFL it’s the Wobbles v the blues at the MCG.

Regional top five saw Seven News on 541,000; Seven News 6.30, 521,000; Home and Away, 342,000; Hard Quiz, 319,000; 7pm ABC News, 311,000.

Put a fork in them, the election is almost done.
