The West helps Seven triumph again, though it’s a hollow victory – they win nationally but get thumped on the East Coast (incl BNE). Dancing With The Stars (2nd – 1,133,000) sees Tony Barber leave and people still interested. Super Fun Night (9th – 791,000) premieres low on Nine and is unlikely to climb, and it gives Big School (13th – 574,000) no leg up. Ten again struggle with their best primetime showing Recipe to Riches (18th – 479,000)… maintaining consistency with NCIS:Los Angeles (20th – 473,000) and Sleepy Hollow (21st – 471,000).
Sunrise (26th – 365,000) and The Today Show (27th – 351,000) starting to ramp up their competitiveness ahead of the new challenger kicking off in a fortnight.
