Another massive night for 10 gazzumped by Nine.

A Current Affair (680,000) leans in big to start the night for Nine, also leading as their best. The penultimate episode of Celebrity Apprentice Australia (455,000) lifts to its season best followed by Million Dollar Murders (236,000) which only does OK. Then it’s either 100% Footy (29,000) or Footy Classified (73,000) depending on your code/state.
Nine first in both primary (19.8%) and network (27.9%) rankings.

Seven again start their night with their best Home & Away (484,000), putting them a fair way behind everything else. Big Brother Australia (361,000) fourth in the slot, and double eps of 9-1-1: Lone Star (155,000; 126,000) keep only fans happy. The late night first-run airing of The Blacklist (40,000) is for die hards and recorders only.
Seven second in both primary (16.7%) and network (24.8%) rankings.

The Logie-winning The Project (294,000 6:30pm; 433,000 7pm) picks up significantly from Sunday’s always weaker offering, followed by the Logie-and-primetime-slot-winning MasterChef Australia (600,000) doing its season best numbers, and the Logie-and-later-slot-winning Have You Been Paying Attention? (668,000). If only 10 could fix their earlier part of the evening. The Montreal Comedy Festival (176,000) offers little, yet still more than a late night repeat of Georgie Carroll: The Gloves Are Off (56,000).
10 third in both primary (16.5%) and network (23.2%) rankings.

7:30 (566,000) starts strong for the ABC, though the follow-ons were a bit weaker than usual in Australian Story (491,000), Four Corners (423,000), and Media Watch (341,000). India Now (133,000) also down as the night rounds out with a repeat of Q+A (40,000).
ABC fourth in both primary (12.7%) and network (17.3%) rankings.

A weaker night for SBS, starting with Saving Lives At Sea (117,000), and repeats of 24 Hours In Emergency (109,000) and Nadia: A Stolen Life (26,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (3.7%) and network (6.9%) rankings.


16-39: Have You Been Paying Attention? (167,000) beats out Seven News 6pm/6:30pm, MasterChef Australia, and Nine News 6:30pm.

18-49: Have You Been Paying Attention? (297,000) comes in ahead of Nine News 6:30pm/6pm, MasterChef Australia, and Seven News 6pm.

25-54: Have You Been Paying Attention? (340,000) slams home the triple demo win, followed by Nine News 6:30pm/6pm, Masterchef Australia, and Seven News 6pm.


Bluey – AM (320,000) on ABC Kids/TV Plus slams home another win in the one-sided multi-channel race.
