A massive semi-final between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray meant the late session of the tennis beat the early session – the game went to 5 sets and nearly 5 hours. It also means the movie that was scheduled didn’t quite get an airing but looks like it rated it’s nuts off… all tennis. No The Biggest Loser Australia trauma for Ch10 tonight, but it had some encouraging results in Glee (15th – 575,000) settling into a new timeslot (though needing better ratings) and The Project (18th – 507,000) cracking 500K for the first time in 6pm mode. One way traffic for Ch7.
