While Big Brother (301,000) was bumped over to GO! due to the Twenty/20 – Australia v South Africa Game 1 (7th – 746,000) it still fared well in the demos – though it wouldn’t want a permanent home there. Border Security (4th – 905,000) the highest non-News for the night while the ABC offerings fared reasonably well… Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell (8th – 731,000), The Chaser’s Media Circus (12th – 638,000), Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery (TBA) & the premiere of Black Comedy (TBA).
