Dancing with the Stars (5th – 908,000) leads the soft non-News charge for the night, though Ten’s Tuesday night favourites NCIS (9th – 674,000) and NCIS: Los Angeles (12th – 563,000) perform reasonably. Kim Kardashian’s appearance on The Project 7pm (14th – 529,000) doesn’t exactly light fires though ticks up the numbers for the program. First Contact (22nd – 433,000) delivers amazing programming that not enough people watch. The ABC airing of Football International: JPN v AUS (31st – 291,000) doesn’t fire for the ABC – perhaps it was a bad idea stealing it from under SBS’s nose?
