Updated: Nine News continues its healthy performances with a rare, national win over Seven News. Was it all buoyed by the breaking news on Schapelle Corby (and if so, why did this benefit Nine?)?
It was the #1 show of the night with 1.37m viewers ahead of Seven News on 1.27m. Nine won in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane while Seven took honours in Adelaide and Perth.
A Current Affair (1.18m) also defeated Today Tonight (1.12m) nationally with wins also in Sydney, Melbourne and Brissy.
But it was Seven which won the night overall with its line-up including Packed to the Rafters (1.24m), Once Upon a Time (1.16m), Home and Away (924,000), Deal or No Deal (660,000), Missing (621,000 / 491,000) and The Price is Right (347,000).
