While Seven News (1st – 1,344,000) led the charge at 6pm, even though Today Tonight (6th – 1,062,000) seemed to trump everyone with the latest Craig Thomson allegations, it still lost to A Current Affair (4th – 1,204,000). The Block (3rd – 1,283,000) still won 7pm slot though the extended MasterChef Australia (5th – 1,115,000) did win the 7:30pm slot – a weeknight rarity but surely welcomed for Ch10. Just to change things up a little for the mornings, The Today Show (28th – 371,000) managed to pip Sunrise (29th – 354,000).
