Nine had its audience peak at 6pm, and then it was downhill, like Ten on Monday night. Ten at least had a program in NCIS at 8.30pm that many viewers wanted to see. Seven won everything, again with programs viewers want to watch. Simple!

The Losers
Nine, well behind. Ten did better, but still had nothing to brag about.
