Better Homes and Gardens is an institution, even when they click into summer/repeat segements mode. To pull over one million viewers on a Friday night is no mean feat. It was a good night for ABC1 too, with Midsomer Murders (11th; 550,000) doing OK but Channel 7 had it wrapped up with Lewis (7th; 740,000) at 8:30pm too. Channel 9 wasn’t really in the hunt, and Channel 10 only had three shows in the Top 20. A long summer for some.

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Today Tonight – Ch7
7:00pm: Big Bang Theory – Ch9
7:30pm: Better Homes and Gardens Summer – Ch7
