The 6pm News rules the roost above one million on Saturdays – Seven News (1st – 1,008,000) & Nine News (2nd – 1,007,000) and just a sniff in it! The NRL Trans-Tasman Test (3rd – 891,000) helped Ch9 to a better Saturday night audience than it has seen in a while too. David Attenborough’s Life in Cold Blood (13th – 330,000) performing marginally better than Steve Irwin’s Wildlife Warriors (20th – 300,000) – the latter poorly placed or is the romance over?
