Boring old Tuesday, huh? One show above one million; five shows above 800,000. The summer pattern reappears much earlier this week. It was Channel 7’s consistency with their shows in the evening that, while they may not have rated through the roof, delivered enough in each timeslot to win the night. They’ll be furiously digging around for additional episodes of Mighty Ships right now. Most notable is new Two and a Half Men (19th; 561,000) really not living up to anything close to good ratings, off-season or not.

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Today Tonight – Ch7
7:00pm: Big Bang Theory – Ch9
7:30pm: Mighty Ships/Serious Crash Unit – Ch7
8:30pm: MOVIE: Meet The Fockers – Ch7
9:30pm: MOVIE: Meet The Fockers – Ch7

Channel 7 won the night (23.6%), followed by Channel 9 (17.6%), Channel 10 (12.6%) & ABC1 (11.8%).
