A massive AFL Grand Final edition of The Footy Show(s) (1st – 1,202,000) helped boost the paired shows to a massive win and a big boost for Nine heading into massive weekend for Seven. The final season of How I Met Your Mother (10th – 677,000) started quite unspectacularly… perhaps it needed more gargantuan testicles. Due to the AFL Footy thing Upper Middle Bogan (11th – 673,000) and It’s A Date (20th – 522,000) cop a bit of a beating though not as much as everything on Ten.
