Well, it almost worked. One of the best Sunday night’s Ten has seen almost all year with the final episode of The Biggest Loser: Challenge Australia (Finale: 12th – 650,000; Final Weigh-In: 8th – 860,000; Winner: 7th – 949,000) not quite cracking any of the timeslots or even getting past the 1m mark, but it did OK. Even without My Kitchen Rules Seven brought home a strong Sunday with Nine not too far behind. ABC’s best was the Jack Irish: Dead Point (11th – 780,000) telemovie.

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Sunday Night – Ch7
7:30pm: 60 Minutes – Ch9
8:30pm: Downton Abbey – Ch7
9:30pm: The Mentalist rpt – Ch9
