Dancing With The Stars (2nd – 954,000) leads the night if only for controversy; Recipe to Riches (17th – 561,000) S02 premieres way down. The Project 7pm (7th – 783,000) peaks up a little for the last breath of The Bachelor Australia controversy. The replay of Whitlam: Power and the Passion (ep1: 14th – 603,000; ep2: 15th – 570,000) proves to be a reasonable success for true believers – RIP Gough.
