Go Back To Where You Came From (11th – 692,000) finishes out another amazing series with the numbers down slightly, but still a lot of interest while winning the 8:30pm timeslot. Big Brother Confidential (9th – 900,000) ‘benefits’ from an earlier timeslot as Big Brother (3rd – 1,040,000) stays strong again – first Thursday above one million. Clearly Thursday night is projecting itself as ‘no taste night’ with Mrs Brown’s Boys (8th – 915,000) & The Footy Show(s) (14th – 662,000) all doing well in their timeslots.
The Paralympics London 2012: Highlights Opening Ceremony (30th – 347,000) does OK at 6pm, but Ch10 is in all sorts of pickle – only two shows in the Top 20, and then slots 22-27 wrapped up for its primetime schedule.

6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Today Tonight – Ch7
