A massive The X Factor Australia (1st – 1,665,000) results show also leads into a good result for Winners and Losers (2nd – 1,152,000), but it’s Nine News (3rd – 1,125,000) that leads the 6pm battle partnering with a winning A Current Affair (5th – 1,053,000). At the other end of the scale, I Will Survive (33rd – 271,000) totters along aimlessly towards its final episode, and Survivor: Philippines (41st – 223,000) all but vanishes with a 10:30pm start time. NCIS (11th – 789,000) struggles to compete, further proving the audience are disenchanted with the network as a whole.
