The big Wednesday night battles are at 7:30pm and 8:30pm. Repeats of Big Bang Theory (11th – 846,000) to prop up the back end of The Block Sky High (2nd – 1,367,000) just isn’t working, allowing an improving House Rules (5th – 1,139,000) to take out the primary family viewing spot.

In 8:30pm there’s a pretty clear pecking order: Arrow (9th – 856,000), Offspring (10th – 847,000), Adam Hills Tonight (17th – 657,000) then MOVIE: Fast Five (18th – 639,000). Important to note that Offspring picks up off a lesser MasterChef Australia (14th – 745,000).
