A night of new shows on Ten up against the well entrenched favourites on the other networks. Scorpion (8th – 597,000), as expected, made a lacklustre debut against the night-winning The Block Glasshouse (1st – 1,546,000) and The X Factor Australia Live Performance (4th – 1,113,000). The series return of Modern Family (16th – 434,000) struggled against the back-end of the reality shows and the front end of 60 Minutes (5th – 1,032,000) and Sunday Night (6th – 1,027,000). Though running late at 9:30pm Big Brother (11th – 558,000) won that timeslot.

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: The Block Glasshouse – Ch9
7:30pm: The Block Glasshouse/60 Minutes – Ch9
8:30pm: 60 Minutes – Ch9
