In free-to-air news, Seven has continued its winning streak, dominating last night’s TV spots, leaving Nine and Network 10 in its wake.
Seven won the top three spots for the night, with Today Tonight coming in at number one (1.054 million viewers) Seven News (1.008 million) and My Kitchen Rules (850,000), according to overnight OzTAM metro numbers.
Nine nabbed the next three spots, with Nine News 6.30 (946,000), Nine News (926,000) and A Current Affair (796,000).
That left Network 10 licking their wounds, with Dancing With The Stars earning itself a measly 543,000 views.
ABC did well for itself, with ABC News garnering 731,000 views, Four Corners earning 710,000 eyeballs and 661,000 viewers tuning in to Australian Story.
