Granted we now know any night that The X Factor Australia (1st – 1,573,000) is on it’s going to win, it realistically comes down to how the other shows do around it. Big Brother (9th – 964,000) falls to third in the 7pm timeslot – not a great sign this early in the week with so many weeks to go. I Will Survive (26th – 391,000) continues to hang in there in Ch10’s schedule, likely because they have nothing to replace it with.

Winners and Losers (2nd – 1,297,000) reasonably won the 8:30pm timeslot if for no other reason than it had absolutely nothing challenging it on the other commercial FTA channels – Anger Management (15th – 586,000) isn’t going so great and that doesn’t offer a great lead in to the under appreciated Episodes (25th – 404,000). Smash (20th – 501,000) rounds out Ch7’s primetime win with reasonable figures, though the viewing audience was down on past Tuesdays.

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Today Tonight – Ch7
7:00pm: ABC News – ABC1
7:30pm: The X Factor Australia – Ch7
8:30pm: Winners and Losers – Ch7
9:30pm: Smash – Ch7

Channel 7 won the night (26.1%), followed by Channel 9 (17.7%), ABC1 (12.3%) & Channel 10 (10.5%).
