A massive start to the night for Seven with Seven News (1st – 1,153,000) but then it trails off heading into a very protracted A-League All Stars v Manchester United – Pre Match (13th – 431,000), though it did pick up for the game proper. ABC1 again led the way post 6:30pm and for most of the night.
