A softer Tuesday night where all the 7:30pm shows do OK but don’t surpass the News. The X Factor Australia (3rd – 1,166,000) led the way, followed by MasterChef Australia (5th – 1,123,000) and Hamish & Andy’s Gap Year South America (6th – 1,047,000). Winners and Losers (11th – 860,000) followed at 8:30/8:45pm but very soft on previous series. Family Feud (19th – 601,000) continues to hang in at 6pm for Ten while Jackie Weaver’s ep of Who Do You Think You Are? (20th – 514,000) provided a highlight for SBS one. Under the Dome (23rd – 466,000) all but tanked for Ten and Nine shafting Arrow (ep1: 25th – 416,000; ep2: 38th – 267,000) draws the expected result.
