A turn up for the books with Seven News (1st – 1,333,000) leading the night and thumping Nine News (4th – 1,184,000) nationally, though the latter did win SYD. Big Brother (2nd – 1,327,000) continues to lead at 7pm for Ch9, and the premiere of Anger Management (8:30pm: 5th – 1,112,000; 9pm; 6th – 1,106,000) does good business as well. The Amazing Race Australia (12th – 896,000) does OK by comparison but is lost in the BB noise. It’s a tight breakfast run between Sunrise (28th – 341,000) and The Today Show (29th – 340,000), while Everybody Dance Now (30th – 324,000) sees a slight bounce up but unlikely enough to save itself.
