The Australian Open continues on Nine.

A repeat of You Can’t Ask That (with a focus on adult virgins) brought in 179,000, before 175,000 watched Grand Designs: House of the Year.

The Project (141,000 6:30pm / 245,000 7pm) also dove into Ardern’s resignation, as well as the public showdown between Michael Clarke and Karl Stefanovic. A repeat of Ambulance Australia saw an audience of 184,000 tune in to a woman who had fallen off her balcony while trying to retrieve her friend’s cat, followed by a rerun of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit which had 114,000 viewers.
