Sunday remains the key battleground for all the FTA networks – Sunday Night (1st – 1,236,000) just pipping Hamish & Andy’s Caravan of Courage: Australia v New Zealand (2nd – 1,219,000), but helping Channel 9 overall to a decisive win for the night. The new and repeat episodes of Modern Family (7:30pm 12th – 725,000; 8pm 11th – 789,000) are the highest rating programs for Ch10 in a pretty light offering for the network – Homeland (15th – 638,000) their third highest but still well down in the ratings for what it should draw.
