Well, the 56th Annual TV Week Logie Awards (Arrivals: 7th – 974,000; Awards: 8th – 962,000) were never going to compete with the likes of a My Kitchen Rules (1st – 1,912,000) semi-final (even though they didn’t overlap that much) or even Sunday Night (3rd – 1,246,000). It did average OK for a four and a bit hour broadcast though. Good news for Ten in that the much vaunted Modern Family: Australia (6th – 1,049,000) episode still pulled over 1m while up against MKR. The Millers (E01: 13th – 611,000; E02: 15th – 541,000) however performed to expectations. Parer’s War (17th – 522,000) does as well as can be expected up against the other traffic of the night.
