What a bonkers night of TV it was was last night.

MAFS did 1.36 million according to overnight OzTAM metro numbers and was easily the most watched show of the night. So, admittedly, no surprises there.

We’re not sure what was in A Current Affair’s tea after it posted a very impressive 927,000 and even beat MKR, that could muster just 761,000.

Seven’s 6pm news went over the million-mark, racking-up 1.08 million viewers. Even Nine’s version came close, falling just shy with 999,000.

Still, it wasn’t all rainbows and sunshine for Nine, with Bad Mothers falling under 500,000. It posted 495,000.

Meanwhile, in the cereal wars, Sunrise (266,000) gave Today (163,000) a tasty tickle (although it must be said, it was a public holiday in Adelaide and Canberra and that would’ve affected numbers.)

Over at 10, Dancing With The Stars bubbled along under 500,000, but rose to 526,000 to watch the former Mrs Stefanovic, Cassandra Thorburn, get the boot, or, in this instance, the pointe.

Meanwhile, in better news for 10, The Project had one of its best nights for a while, posting 469,000.

For the ABC, its night of news and current affairs were all strongish. Its 7pm news pulled 729,000, 7.30 had 620,000, Four Corners did 605,000, Media Watch had 585,000, Australian Story did 526,000 and Q&A had 393,000.

SBS’ best was The Kennedys with 185,000.

So, after all that, who won? Nine took the honours with 33.3 per cent. Seven was second and 27.5 per cent, the ABC snared third and 17.4 per cent, 10 was fourth with 15.6 per cent and SBS took home 6.2 per cent.
