TV ratings 20th February: Seven wins Thursday with news, H&A + MKR

• Seven wins Thursday with News, Summer Bay and…MKR!

• Best of the rest: ACA, Ambulance Australia, Secrets of Britain

The strength of Seven’s early evening line-up has been key to it winning another Thursday night. Home and Away was #1 non-news to end its week on 563,000. The Thursday edition of My Kitchen Rules: The Rivals was a winner with 501,000 up against ob docs on its commercial competitors.

Nine was a close second with A Current Affair on 606,000 followed by RBT with 428,000. Nine’s Thursday movie was then London Has Fallen with 304,000 watching.

10’s best was at 7.30pm with Ambulance Australia on 463,000. The demo split was enough to rank the series #1 under 50 and in key demos. It was followed by Law & Order: SVU on 289,000. Earlier in the night The Project slipped below 400,000 after 7pm.

ABC News and then 7.30 both made the top 10. Doctor Who was a disappointing performer again, failing to crack the top 20 and ranking fifth in the timeslot.

It’s been a big week (again) for the best of British on SBS. Last night a repeat episode of Secrets of Britain as poking about Winchester with 297,000 watching after 7.30pm.
