The announcement of the Top 12 for The X Factor Australia (1st – 1,416,000) was always going to mean it would be big for a Tuesday night and the series didn’t disappoint. Big Brother (9th – 871,000) slides under 900,000 and Under the Dome (10th – 840,000) again Ten’s highest for a Tuesday. The Great Australian Bake Off (18th – 622,000) suffering from a poor lead in just scrapes above 600,00 – this fun series deserves more but it’s not going to get it as the schedule stands.
