The magic is back! (Sorry about that). Dynamo: Magician Impossible (3rd – 933,000) summons a large swathe of viewers on an otherwise slow night after the NewsCaff hour. It smashed the second episode of The Wedding Band (16th – 560,000) and Ch9’s marathon The Big Bang Theory (7:30pm: 12th – 703,000; 8pm: 13th – 672,000) offering. Grimm (15th – 572,000) gets a free kick at 8:30pm because of the magic before it – not a bad theme night for Ch7. The final ep of Problems (27th – 306,000) struggles to draw the viewing audience it deserves.
