A night for news, with Seven News (1st – 1,170,000) taking top spot though it was Nine News (1,117,000) who won the East Coast battle with a draw in SYD(!) and wins in MEL/BNE. Home and Away (6th – 958,000) the highest non-News programming (who says we are starved for good content?!). The Project (23rd – 476,000) down below 500K again, and it’s not good news for Ch10’s Breakfast (95th – 32,000 [3 hour average]) going down rather than up in the ratings.
