Pulling a bigger crowd in the timeslot was Seven’s Better Homes and Garden where the numbers lifted 5% to an audience of 685,000.

Nine continued its clean sweep of TV ratings Week 9, 2023 with the return of the NRL on 389,000 pushing its primary share to 22%, a similar result that the football code delivered on Thursday.

Earlier in the day Sunrise was a clear leader at breakfast on 216,000.
