Ch9’s great white hope – House Husbands (1st – 1,376,000) delivers on its first episode and they’ll be well pleased with the audience buzz surrounding it. Sunday Night (2nd – 1,357,000) wins the battle of Sunday night current affairs over 60 Minutes (4th – 1,328,000), though on the whole there’s lots of people watching a fair amount of TV on both Ch7 & Ch9.

Big Brother – Live Eviction (9th – 949,000) slumps below one million for an eviction, and for Ch9’s sake this best not be a trend though the introduction of the fake parallel house did throw the cat amongst the housemate pigeons. Ch10’s highest rating show for the night? Modern Family Ep2 rpt (15th – 600,000). Ouch.
