Crikey



Seven sweeps, Nine weeps

The Glenn Dyer breakdown: With My Kitchen Rules and Packed to the Rafters, the audience was always going to give Seven the win for the night and the week.

The Biggest Loser had a second night above 900,000 viewers ( 919,000) and more than 1.2 million nationally.

At last we saw the real Indian cricket team last night in the One Day International cricket match against Sri Lanka (who weren’t too shabby either). How long has it taken? A thrilling run chase by India. The night session averaged 258,000 on Gem.

On Pay TV, Fox Classics was the most popular channels thanks to two episodes of that new breakthrough program called MASH and the sensational new war movie, The Guns of Navarone.

Tonight: My Kitchen Rules and Please Marry My Boy on Seven. Nine has the final episode of Sherlock which has failed to set the audience on fire. Odd.

Ten has The Biggest Loser and Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation followed by The Good Wife (which will struggle because of weak lead-ins). The ABC has Woodley, then Adam Hills in Gordon St. Tonight.
