A busy night as expected – The X Factor Australia (1st – 1,6667,000) offers it’s final performance show for the year and it smashed everything in it’s path – Can Of Worms (30th – 364,000) the main program to suffer. Despite the competition ABC1’s Monday line up continued to run strong, with Jennifer Bryne Presents (11th – 820,000), Four Corners (10th – 829,000), Media Watch (13th – 757,000) & Q&A (9th – 840,000) all performing very well… Q&A delivering its highest ratings for the year with the Rudd/Turnbull show (Castle only pipping it due to the over-run of X Factor).
