Nine News (1st – 1,081,000) round out their week with a win; beyond that it’s the usual suspects in Better Homes and Gardens (3rd – 927,000) & The Doctor Blake Mysteries (4th – 883,000) holding their own for the evening. Surprisingly NRL commitments on Friday allow The Block All Stars (10th – 716,000) to be played at another time in Brisbane – but not Thursdays. Appalling.

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Nine News – Ch9
6:30pm: A Current Affair – Ch9
7:00pm: Home and Away – Ch7
7:30pm: Better Homes and Gardens – Ch7
8:30pm: The Doctor Blake Mysteries – ABC1
9:30pm: Friday Night NRL Live/PostMatch – Ch9

Channel 9 won the night (24%), followed by Channel 7 (21.2%), ABC1 (14.6%) & Channel 10 (8.9%).
