10 had a win with Googlebox (645,000), the fifth most watched show of the evening and the most watched entertainment show.

When it came to the stragglers, Seven’s Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries (346,000) and 10’s Show Me The Movie! (326,000) and a repeat of Hughesy We Have A Problem (272,000) all got marked with a “try harder”.

Seven’s 6pm news was the most watched show of Thursday with 925,000. The Chase (529,000) and Home And Away (524,000) were the network’s other standouts.

Nine’s 6pm news enjoyed 844,000, ACA had 611,000 and Hot Seat pulled 453,000.

The ABC’s night ran thus: 7pm news (634,000), 7.30 (583,000) and Escape From The City (450,000).

For SBS, its best was Secrets Of The Tudors with 210,000.
