With the AFL Footy Show out of the way it opened the schedule a little – enough that The NRL Footy Show (21st – 407,000) Grand Final edition seemed to vanish by comparison (admittedly it was only broadcast on the East Coast). Upper Middle Bogan (13th – 602,000) & It’s A Date (20th – 498,000) both finished up down on their launch figures but strong enough given their competition. Seven’s delivery of MOVIE: Pretty Woman (14th – 580,000) still managed to snag a number of viewers for them into the night. Masters of Sex (29th – 265,000) premieres on SBS and is largely ignored (at the peril of the market in this reviewer’s opinion).
