Friday night’s a great night for football… if you’re in Sydney or Brisbane. The start of the National Rugby League season brought in big figures – night winning for Ch9 in those two markets, and then it wasn’t shown anywhere else, so it ended up coming 9th nationally – but add in the 20 to 1 ep that aired in the other states and technically Ch9 won the 7:30pm timeslot by 7,000 viewers. Remember also that with the earthquake and tsunami in Japan that a number of news services ran specials, etc.

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Today Tonight – Ch7
7:00pm: ABC News – ABC1
7:30pm: Better Homes and Gardens – Ch7
8:30pm: New Tricks – ABC1
9:30pm: Nine’s Friday Night Football (2nd game) – Ch9

A big push from Ch9 with the NRL, however it was Ch7 that took the night by 1%.

Digital Multi-channels

Neighbours again, but not by much on Escape to the Country – and both of them sub 250K viewers. Guess everyone was everywhere else. GO!’s line up of movies helped it to the win.

A win for GO! against the other digital multis, but a 7 Network win overall.
