Seven performed well considering the World Cup qualifier on Nine.

Home and Away was just over 600,000, ahead of Instant Hotel on 525,000, which didn’t suffer too much after 583,000 a week ago.

The Secret Daughter episode two did 492,000 after launching last week on 304,000.

A late night special – Jessica Mauboy All The Hits Live – did 212,000 with a start close to 10pm.


A Current Affair was on 600,000, but because of the football it didn’t air in Brisbane.

Nine was originally thinking about running the Socceroos v Honduras match on 9GO! but because of the importance of the game it switched to the primary channel with impressive results.

The pre-game in Sydney and Melbourne did 443,000 before the game then pulled a metro audience of 1.16m. The combined national audience was 1.52m with 360,000 in regional markets.

The match coverage on 9Now set a new streaming record for the platform with 82,678 live stream starts between 8pm and 10pm.


The channel was hit by audience drifting elsewhere last night.

The Project 7pm did 493,000 before the numbers dropped to 346,000 for Jamie Oliver.

Sisters did 218,000 after 251,000 last week.


Hard Quiz kicked off the same time as the football match yet Hard Quiz was close to 600,000 after 681,000 last week.

The final episode of Gruen for series nine this year was almost a Taylor Swift marketing masterclass with 718,000 after 841,000 last week. The consolidated numbers should be bigger next week and there is always the option of Gruen XL tonight.

Rosehaven then did 444,000 as Australia was slotting through three goals in the second half of the match on Nine and Fox Sports. The sitcom did 579,000 last week.

The Letdown then did 297,000 after 353,000 a week ago.


Europe’s Last Warrior Kings was the 7.30pm attraction with an audience of 194,000.
