Over at Nine, is best was its 6pm news with 938,000, The Block with 901,000 and ACA with 810,000.

Seven boasted the most watched show of the evening, with its 6pm news pulling a neat one million. The Chase had 591,000, Motorbike Cops had 579,000, Highway Patrol  had 543,000 and 9-1-1 phoned-in 498,000.
