Glenn Dyer’s comments: Seven’s night and week.

Nationally the most-watched programs were:

  1. Packed to the Rafters — 2.412 million
  2. The X Factor — 2.152 million
  3. Seven News — 1.950 million
  4. Home and Away — 1.784 million
  5. Nine News — 1.553 million

Tonight: The ABC is the place to be: Spicks and Specks, The Gruen Transfer and At Home with Julia.

Seven has The X Factor. Nine has nought: The Mentalist is a repeat and RPA at 9.30 is fading away.

Ten has nought. Well, it has The Renovators and starts repeats of Glee at 8.30 after using up a fresh episode of Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation last week. Programming indecision.

And the Rugby World Cup is on Fox Sports this afternoon. All are minor pool matches.
