Seven’s night flagged -- Little Big Shots was slotted in at 7.30pm and could only manage 912,000 nationally, while the two part UK crime drama, Bancroft weakened from 506,000 for the first episode to 385,000 for episode two and looked more like an average police drama more suited to 7TWO. Have You Been Paying Attention starred for Ten with a solid 1 million and a top 10 national finish.
