With no MKR on the menu Friday night almost seems like a wasteland. Better Homes and Gardens (2nd – 1,076,000) lead the non-News charge with the very respectable Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (4th – 951,000) not too far behind. Nine’s Live Friday Night Football (10th – 696,000) led the sporting charge for the evening with 2012 Energy Australia Swimming Championships (11th – 684,000) not far behind thanks largely to the country’s fascination with all things Thorpey (booger aside).
