Another massive night for The X Factor (1st – 1,510,000). It seems we no longer build shows rather we lurch wildly from one to the other. Big Brother (7th – 1,042,000) remains above the million (importantly) and the improved lead in pops Winners and Losers (8th – 1,017,000) up over same. Under The Dome (11th – 834,000) maintains a respectable but distant second place while The Great Australian Bake Off (15th – 722,000) slides to its lowest numbers yet.
