Seven drama series Winners and Losers had one of the bigger falls in audience last night shedding 50,000 on last week to record a metro audience of 770,000.

The result came on a night in which Nine’s share firmed while Seven’s softened, with Bringing Sexy Back at 7.30pm also posting a decline in audience for the third straight week with an audience of 681,000, down from 687,000 last week. However the show, fronted by Sunrise presenter Samantha Armytage is still above its debut of 654,000.

Ten’s Under the Dome in the 9.30pm slot also saw an improvement in its ratings to 309,000 from 294,000 last week, when it also picked up 167,000 as the third most time shifted show of the night lat week, for a total of 461,000 viewers.

In the news stakes Nine News had 1.191m viewers in the 6pm slot while its rival Seven had 1.033m across the five cities. This dropped to 1.033m in the 6.30pm slot for Nine and 953,000 for Seven.
