Seven News (1.118 million) and Today Tonight (933,000) beat Nine News (1.103 million) and A Current Affair (904,000).

Nine’s The Big Bang Theory brought in 809,000 viewers to Nine with another 672,000 and 577,000 tuning in to two other repeats of the US sitcom.

Nine won a total 23.4% of all FTA viewers with 17.6% of that going to the network’s primary channel.

Ten came third with a total 18.7% but its primary channel (13.1%) just lost out to ABC1’s (13.3%).
