All about the State of Origin Rugby League (Pre-Match: 2nd – 1,378,000; Match: 1st – 2,0490,000; Post-Match: 5th – 1,236,000) last night (note: does not include Perth figures as shown on GEM, but add another 98,000 to the match total). Another big win for Nine. MasterChef Australia (9th – 971,000) does reasonably against it, as does Offspring (12th – 738,000), and Seven as expected offer no challenge. Billy Connolly’s Big Send Off (19th – 612,000) and QI (18th – 622,000) the only highlights for the ABC.
