The final Thursday for ratings in 2011, and as expected Beauty and the Geek Australia finale took out the night as the most popular show for Channel 7. The Slap also wrapped up, but not as strongly as past episodes (which is a shame, as the finale was one of the strongest episodes of the series). The best Channel 10 could offer was Recruits: Paramedics at 17th, and Channel 9 didn’t offer too much competition either.

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Today Tonight – Ch7
7:00pm: Home and Away – Ch7
7:30pm: Beauty and the Geek Australia – Ch7
8:30pm: BATG/Happy Endings – Ch7
9:30pm: The Mentalist – Ch9
