A relaxed Friday night again where the 6pm News services are the only things to rise above one million viewers (and only just at that). The 7pm start for Better Homes and Gardens (3rd – 909,000) didn’t hurt it and The Doctor Blake Mysteries (5th – 800,000) again triumphed against the sporting juggernaut. Friday Night NRL Live (8th – 609,000) beat out Seven’s AFL: Friday Night Football (566,000) on the primary channels, though admittedly the latter was missing the Perth audience as a major contributor.

6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Today Tonight – Ch7
7:00pm: Better Homes and Gardens – Ch7
