Tuesdays soften quickly – The X Factor Australia (1st – 1,488,000) says goodbye to Carmelo with the usual wailing and gnashing of teeth. It plays through for Ch7 with Winners and Losers (4th – 1,031,000) performing strongly after it though Grey’s Anatomy (23rd – 539,000) struggling in the later timeslot. Ch9 not faring well but Ch10 struggling, except for NCIS (11th – 825,000) though the network did step above the ABC for what is now a rare occasion. I Will Survive (27th – 384,000) sinks to the honour of the lowest rating commercial primetime show for the night. Hmm.

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: A Current Affair – Ch9
7:00pm: ABC News – ABC1
7:30pm: The X Factor Australia – Ch7
