First Monday of ratings and it was as soft as we expected though part 1 of the finale of The Blacklist (3rd – 1,017,000) was the only thing other than the News to break one million. It was mostly dross and repeats otherwise and movies after 9:30pm. At least The Project (20th – 519,000) had an interview with Commander Chris Hadfield. Some people are still trying. Homeland (24th – 451,000) still not doing well though up against stiff competition.

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Today Tonight – Ch7
7:00pm: Better Homes and Gardens Summer – Ch7
7:30pm: Dog Patrol/Air Rescue – Ch7
8:30pm: The Blacklist – Ch7
9:30pm: MOVIE: The Wedding Singer (1st hour) – Ch9

Channel 7 won the night (21.9%), followed by Channel 9 (20.6%), Channel 10 (12.1%) & ABC1 (11.5%).
