The Losers: Nothing really stands out. Ten’s NCIS repeats at 8.3 pm are getting past their use by date, the 738,000 last night was poor. Help is on the way. Nine’s Derren Brown: The Events at 9pm, 508,000, even poorer than NCIS.

News & CA: Without a star interview, it was back to normal for ACA last night. It won Melbourne, lost the rest to TT. Seven News won all five metro markets. Sunrise was still in front of Today in the mornings. Foreign Correspondent was very solid. Good report.

Glenn Dyer’s comments: Packed to the Rafters did it again for Seven and the numbers were a little better because Seven put Four Weddings into 7.30pm and it held the million viewer mark.

TONIGHT: Wednesday is now the best night of the week, again. Nine brings The Block back at 7.30pm, with a new series, The Boss is Coming to Dinner. Seven returns Border Security at 7.30pm and The Force at 8pm. Ten has Glee back at 7.30pm after The 7pm Project. Ten also returns House at 8.30pm, which is brave after the weak outing last series. The ABC has Spicks and Specks at 8.30pm and then The Gruen Transfer at 9pm. No one can complain about not having choice tonight. All you have to do is to be able to work your PVR.
