The first of The X Factor Australia (1st – 1,384,000) home visits again offers a strong lead for Ch7 on Monday night, and Underbelly Badness (5th – 1,033,000) wins its timeslot again. Big Brother (7:30pm Nominations 8th – 1,023,000; 7pm Daily Show 10th – 987,000) again softens a little earlier in the week than Ch9 would like though it still leads the three commercial networks at 7pm. Australian Story (9th – 1,020,000), Four Corners (13th – 902,000), Media Watch (14th – 787,000) & Q&A (16th – 696,000) all strong for ABC1 on a tough Monday night.
Ch10’s Monday still struggles – Don’t Tell The Bride (24th – 515,000), Can Of Worms (20th – 561,000) & the final episode of The Shire (36th – 237,000) all finding it hard to get any traction. That said, the network’s highest rating program for the night: Ten News at Five (15th – 758,000).
