Well, line.split()[5] isn't the address, it's the time, e.g. "09:14:16". 
You need to do just a little more work to extract the hour.

I don't know what you think you'll achieve by sorting key/value pairs in 
reverse order. What you should be doing is sorting the keys (hours), 
although sorting the pairs of keys and values (i.e., the items) would 
have the same effect. Have a look at the 'sorted' function.
