The network secured all three of the top spots, with Nine News scoring 1.41 million and reality renovation show The Block Sky High taking 1.39 million.

Seven’s renovation offering, House Rules, also scored above a million viewers (1.07 million) but sat sixth behind Seven News and Nine’s A Current Affair.

Today Tonight (Seven) was the only other program to lure more than one million viewers.

After a stellar first season with ratings to rival The Voice, Seven’s second series of Revenge looks to be lagging. Last night’s episode – the 18th in the second series – scraped into the top ten with 881,000 viewers beneath Home and Away (966,000 viewers) and ABC News (969,000).

Nine’s Hot Seat and Major Crimes both pulled over 770,000 each, while Ten’s The Biggest Loser Next Generation sat 15th with 728,000.

Ten had one other show in the top 20, that being Ten News At Five which attracted exactly 700,000.

Nine won the night taking a 34.7% share of audience, followed by Seven on 27.7%, the ABC on 17.6% and Ten on 15.9%. SBS drew 4.1%.
