Even though it was the last weeknight of the 2011 ratings season, everyone had pretty much packed up and gone home ahead of time. Better Homes and Gardens won the night, and reflected Ch7’s dominance of not only the night or the week, but the year in total. Midsomer Murders was strong for ABC1, and the highest non-News programming for Ch9 was RBT (9th, 554,000). When The Bold and the Beautiful (20th, 393,00) is your highest rating non-News programming Ch10 – you’ve got some stuff to sort out.
