Channel Nine tops the night despite drops for Reno Rumble and Love Child

While Nine grabbed the winning share of 19.5 per cent Ten topped Seven with 18.8 per cent to 18 per cent, with ABC languishing in fourth on 11.2 per cent.

After House Rules seven saw a double episode of Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares from 8.45am pick up on last week with 584,000 and 466,000 viewers respectively, up from 510,000 and 447,000 last week.
