Whenever a finale promises a death, it’s gonna rate. Winners and Losers (1st – 1,172,000) delivered a win for Ch7 with its final episode for the year, and helped Ch7 to a neat win for the night. Fifty Years of Bond Cars: A Top Gear Special (7th – 957,000) showed the ageless draw of Fleming’s creation and his cars and causes Once Upon A Time (9th – 838,000) to struggle a little. You’d think nobody is watching Mike & Molly (28th – 381,000), but then even fewer caught the season final of Scandal (41st – 205,000). Repeats of Modern Family (12th – 653,000) & NCIS (13th – 652,000), along with two new episodes of Jamie’s 15 Minute Meals (7:30pm 17th – 612,000; 8pm 14th – 636,000) the only real highlights for Channel 10.
