The Winners: Seven's night. It won All People and all the demos with its strongly female-skewing line up. Ten did better than on Monday night. Seven's Four Weddings at 7.30pm, 978,000. Modern Family, Ten, 7.30pm, 933,000. The Renovators on Ten at 8pm, 833,000. From 8.30pm Ten faded.

The Losers: Nine ran dead last night. Ten had to run the new episode of Modern Family at 7.30 to try and help the struggling The Renovators at 8 o'clock. Nine trotted out a third-rate line-up. Top Gear at 8.30, 695,000 for a fresh episode. It used to get over a million last year. The male-skewing program can't compete with Seven's female-skewing programming. News & CA: Seven News and TT again lost Sydney to Nine News and ACA. Seven News and ACA won the rest. Hot Seat, Nine, averaged 195,000 at 5.30pm in Sydney, Deal Or No Deal on Seven in the same slot averaged 148,000. That 47,000 difference accounted for most of the 62,000 winning margin for Hot Seat nationally. Today's audience slumped sharply, losing more than 80,000 viewers yesterday morning from Monday. 6.30 With George Negus lifted a little last night but still well under the 400,000 mark. it has to regain that to keep up momentum.

(All shares on the basis of combined overnight 6pm to midnight All People) Glenn Dyer's comments: Seven's night, easily as it said goodbye to the successful first season of a new soap, Winners & Losers, and brought back Packed To The Rafters, its most successful soap/drama for the rest of the ratings year.
