Again sport splits the capitals and the audiences, allowing ABC1 to benefit (but not Ch10 so much). Nine News (1st – 1,035,000) leads the way and the only program over one million viewers. Good to see The Checkout (8th – 664,000) getting some decent-ish figures.

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Nine News – Ch9
6:30pm: A Current Affair – Ch9
7:00pm: ABC News – ABC1
7:30pm: 7:30/The Checkout – ABC1
8:30pm: Thursday Night NRL Live (second hour) – Ch9
9:30pm: Seven’s AFL: Thursday Night Football (third hour) – Ch7

Channel 7 won the night (22.4%), followed by Channel 9 20.2(%), ABC1 (12.9%) & Channel 10 (10.3%).
