Another night, another lacklustre result for Ch10. At least The Project (15th; 620,000) is maintaining it’s ratings through summer – this will help at the start of ratings in 2012. Repeats of Modern Family (10th; 743,000) worthy of any decent ratings they can muster. The Glades not making the Top 20 is a shame as it’s decent new summer programming from Ch10. For some reason people are still flocking to Big Bang Theory (7pm 6th; 908,000 | 7:30pm 5th; 986,000 | 8pm 3rd; 1,050,000) on Ch9, but the network’s consistency across the night helped it to the win. Ch7 pull five shows in the Top 20 however even with the top two shows for the night the couldn’t pull together the win.
