Bye bye Jason The X Factor Results (1st – 1,471,000) & bye bye Ava Big Brother Live Eviction (6th – 1,056,000). Add in the John Laws interview on 7:30 (14th – 707,000), the continued underperformance of I Will Survive (32nd – 309,000) and the return of 2 Broke Girls (13th – 760,000) and it was a night of sadness for some all round. Even the season premiere of NCIS (12th – 805,000) couldn’t lift Ch10’s spirits though that was the highest they’ve seen in ratings for a primetime program in a week or so.
