A big win for The X Factor Australia (2nd – 1,245,000) but all the noise was at 6pm with Family Feud (13th – 719,000) lifting in the ratings for its second night (and beating Seven News in Sydney!). MasterChef Australia (8th – 973,000) slides a little, as does Hamish and Andy’s Gap Year South America (6th – 1,014,000). The pop-up Inside Story: Baden-Clay (19th – 551,000) did very average given its last minute inclusion and Under the Dome (20th – 520,000) struggles on first airing for Ten though it leads the catch-up figures for last week.
