A tight race, but another night to Channel 9 (Can they win the off-ratings season? Does it count for anything?). Big Bang Theory (3rd, 1,012,000) again led the charge but a stronger A Current Affair and other wins across the night helped. Ch7’s highest non-news was Serious Crash Unit (11th, 676,000), while Ch10’s was Modern Family (9th, 697,000). Again sadly The Project (20th, 552,000) languishes but then it is non-ratings and everything is down. The return of Nigella with Nigella’s Kitchen (8th, 701,000) wasn’t bad for ABC1 they just didn’t have enough other programming to match.
