Glenn Dyer’s comments: As expected Seven has set up its win this week with a dominant night last night. Ten was also competitive again and Nine was squeezed out and will finish close to third. It was a standard night’s TV. MasterChef was also dominant; Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation on Ten at 7.30pm to 8.30pm was strong. Ten’s weakness at 6pm to 7pm cost it any chance of winning All People and 25s to 54s because Packed To The Rafters sucked up a lot of the 25s to 54s. Ten won the 16 to 39s and 18 to 49s on the night, Seven the 25s to 54s. All Saints at 9.30pm and averaged 796,000, but wasn’t shown in Melbourne where Packed To the Rafters is in catch up mode after starting in that market last night with a double episode. Little Britain averaged 580,000 on Nine at 10.30pm. Foreign Correspondent at 8pm on the ABC, 637,000 against some strong opposition on Ten and Seven.

Next Tuesday night Nine has the latest Harry Potter movie at 7.30 pm, Seven rolls over The Zoo and Find My Family with Air Ways (new) and the return of Surf Patrol. Ten runs MasterChef at an hour in its last week.

TONIGHT: The ABC: Spicks And Specks and The Chaser. Seven has finals for Thank God You’re Here and Criminal Minds, Nine has highlights of the Jacko memorial service from 7pm. (Seven has a Jacko thing at 10pm). Nine also has RPA. SBS has of course the first cricket Test from 7.30pm and the bike race (which is also on SBS Two).
