The makeovers are always a drawcard – Beauty and the Geek Australia (3rd – 1,026,000) are the highest non-News program for the night. Big Brother (6th – 926,000) slides in just behind ABC News (5th – 950,000) again though with Big Brother Confidential (10th – 783,000) it wins the 7:30pm timeslot. Redfern Now (12th – 721,000) premieres lower than hoped, but across its 5 remaining episodes it should lift through word of mouth. Brynne: My Bedazzled Life (16th – 644,000) continues to slide into oblivion – perhaps the Australian iterations of the reality obdoc genre are done?
