A busy Monday night – six shows over one million viewers, led by The X Factor Australia (1,422,000). What is disturbing for Ch9 is that this is the second weeknight in a row (and firs Monday) Big Brother (10th – 876,000) has been beaten by Home and Away (6th – 1,005,000) – not a trend they’ll want to see continue. Can Of Worms (18th – 572,000) lifts on past weeks for good reason after a very funny episode, despite a very poor lead-in from new Ch10 program Ben and Kate (30th – 338,000).

I despair of a country where 1 million people watch H&A. Sigh.
