The leader of the opposition, Anthony Albanese’s budget reply speech pulled 391,000 viewers for the ABC last night but was soundly trumped by 10’s double-whammy of Googlebox (613,000) and The Bachelorette (543,000).
Albo’s counter-punch was a good 127,000 off Josh Frydenberg’s budget speech that pulled 518,000 on Tuesday. All numbers are OzTAM metro.

Seven’s evening ran this way: 6pm news (970,000), The Chase (501,000), Home And Away (495,000) and The Front Bar (310,000).
Nine’s standouts were its 6pm news (891,000), ACA (722,000), Hot Seat (489,000), a repeat of Paramedics (403,000) and Kings Cross ER (341,000).
