Another big night for The X Factor Australia (1st – 1,435,000) and not too many other shows. Big Brother (3rd – 1,106,000) ties with Nine News (3rd – 1,106,000) as the highest rating Ch9 show for the night, with Farmer Wants A Wife (10th – 894,000) rating reasonably but not awesomely. Gruen Planet (11th – 810,000) is strong for ABC1, ahead of Puberty Blues (12th – 751,000) which has softened but steadied across its run (and is also Ch10’s highest rating show for the night). I Will Survive (29th – 360,000) seems unlikely to do so, at least on the primary channel.

Go Back To Where You Came From (16th – 652,000) continues strongly for SBS one.

6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
