Seven News (1st – 1,121,000) aside, The Block (2nd – 1,029,000) and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (6th – 877,000) continued their timeslot-winning ways. The two sporting fixtures for the night – Nine’s Live Friday Night Football (9th – 687,000) & Seven’s AFL: Friday Night Football (663,000) – fared reasonably(even though neither were on the primary networks in all markets and the NRL wasn’t live on Ch9); not so the two hour finale of Young Talent Time (20th – 420,000) which was up slightly on previous weeks however still rating poorly.

6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Today Tonight – Ch7
