A big night for Ten with The Bachelor Australia (6th – 870,000) not only growing to a series high but also winning the 7:30pm slot (also strong in the key demos). This points very buoyantly to a finale next week that will do well for them as well as the follow up show planned for Thursday. SlideShow (8th – 717,000) finishes its run reasonably for Seven; Tractor Monkeys (22nd – 456,000) S02 not so much for ABC1 (a shame as this season was way better); and Wonderland (13th – 626,000) does OK for its season finale. Both eps of Hostages (8:30pm: 23rd – 439,000; 9:30pm: 24th – 429,000) consistent but well low. Ja’mie: Private School Girl (16th – 575,000) drops to its lowest yet this season.
