Big Brother (5th – 976,000) & Big Brother Confidential (7th – 904,000) both do extremely well, and while it misses in the 7pm slot it does win at 7:30pm. The battle at 8:30pm between Criminal Minds (9th – 874,000) and Rake (10th – 798,000) is pretty close, with the latter a welcome return to our screens (and to have something decent on at 8:30pm on Thursday!). Lowdown (25th – 452,000) returned a little softer against The Footy Show(s) (13th – 681,000).
