A big finale night for The Biggest Loser Australia (Finale 2nd – 1,348,000; Winner 1st – 1,365,000) and some much needed attention for Ch10. The Block (5th – 1,200,000) continues to hold court at 7pm though, ahead of MasterChef Australia (11th – 1,078,000). It’s a busy schedule with 11 shows over one million viewers, including Packed To The Rafters (6th – 1,178,000). Even ABC1’s coverage of Budget 2012 (17th – 711,000) did reasonably well as political wonks around the country tuned in to find out how their lives might change.

6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Today Tonight – Ch7
7:00pm: The Block – Ch9
