A very simple night of TV really. One show would have done it for Seven, but it rescheduled The Blacklist from tonight to last night to allow tonight’s results episode of The X Factor to run for two hours or more, and won the night and the week in a canter.  The X Factor had 3.032 million national/2.020 million metro/ 1.012 million regional viewers and The Blacklist followed with 2.140 million national/ 1.457 million metro/ 683,000 regional viewers. Naturally Seven won the demos. And that was the night. Even this bearded 60-year-old loved Dami Im last night (and in previous weeks).

Seven’s Castle, which followed The Blacklist, also won the night in its time slot with 1.160 million/ 765,000 metro/ 395,000 regional viewers, with most of those falling after 10pm. Nine’s weak Australia’s Got Talent averaged 1.018 million national/712,000 metro/ 306,000 regional viewers. It returns next Sunday in the hope more viewers will find it with The X Factor ending tonight.
