A big first night for Celebrity Apprentice Australia, with it taking a decent 1.3 million viewers (though the coding was split across two shows, and it ran 15 minutes late boosting the ratings of Big Bang Theory that followed it) – in splitting it they gain two Top 10 shows, but miss out on winning either the 7pm or 7:30pm slot. The X Factor Australia still performing well for Channel 7, and Body of Proof delivering strongly out of it (playing the demos well). The 7pm Project was Ch10’s highest rating show at 16th for the night (716,000), and Q&A with John Waters and Kate Miller-Heidke up for a change (685,000). Junior MasterChef flagging with 679,000 against the other 7:30pm contenders.
