The grand final of Seven's House Rules was just shy of two million viewers last night, with the end of the series winning the top-rating program of the night in all cities and across all demographics.

The finale of the contest was split into two shows, Winner Announced and Grand Final, which won 1.988 million and 1.730 million viewers respectively across Australia's five metro areas.

The audience figures were up on last year's grand final, which won audiences of 1.83 million and 1.53 million respectively.

House Rules' finale hit Nine with numbers slightly down for The Voice Kids, which won 1.255 million fans yesterday, compared to 1.665 million last week.

The end of the home reno show also set Seven up to take the biggest free-to-air audience share by far, with 37.9%. That left Nine with 25.1% and Ten with 17.9%.

Ten's MasterChef Australia also made the top 10, with 909,000 viewers putting it in ninth spot, according to preliminary overnight ratings figures from OzTam.

Seven's A Place to Call Home (eighth spot with 957,000 viewers) and the ABC's Grand Designs (10th spot with 779,000) also made the top 10.

News programs completed the top of the charts, with Seven News leading the way, in third place with an audience of 1.324 million.

Seven's Sunday Night was fourth, with 1.289 million viewers, Nine News was sixth, with 1.255 million, and Nine's 60 Minutes was seventh, with 999,000.
