New Tricks (1st – 1,164,000) leads the pack again as everyone under 50 is out and not watching TV. Better Homes and Gardens (5th – 903,000) continues to lead The Living Room (18th – 458,000) as the choice of Friday night lifestyle shows, though the latter likely tarred by the “but it’s a Channel 10 show – it must be crap” expectation (it’s very good, btw).
