Ch9 again rejoices at a 6pm News win due in no small part to the Cricket lead in. After that though… it all kind of peters out for everyone. Nigellissima (12th – 615,000) makes a showing for ABC1, and even a repeat of Person Of Interest (16th – 552,000) rates higher than Ch10’s best – Ten News at Five (17th – 547,000). Just a slow Thursday night all round.
