Again, for reasons only apparent to those that watch it, The Big Bang Theory (7:30pm: 1st – 1,123,000; 8pm: 4th – 984,000) wins the night, clearly beating The Big Adventure (15th – 643,000) and the Gold Coast Cops (22nd – 522,000)/Territory Cops (18th – 618,000) double. Big Brother (14th – 671,000) doesn’t fare much better though, beaten by Four Corners (11th – 740,000)/Media Watch (16th – 638,000). Party Tricks (25th – 430,000) all but limps to the finish line with a poor performance for its penultimate ep.
