ANZAC Day AFL helped push Seven News to a bumper audience of 1.47m viewers last night, with 530,000 of them alone in Melbourne, well ahead of Nine’s 367,000.
In turn that helped My Kitchen Rules edge in front of The Voice, despite Nine winning the slot on Monday. But there wasn’t much between them.
The second part of Nine’s House of Bond miniseries increased from Part 1, lifting from 613,000 to 657,000, not a bad figure given the late 9pm start.
TEN’s dramatic Bondi Rescue special drew 553,000, an improvement on Sunday figures.
It was bad news for the final of Life on the Line at ABC limping out with just 292,000.
Nine network drew 32.0% then Seven 31.1%, TEN 17.2%, ABC 12.8% and SBS 6.9%.
