The Big Bang Theory eclipsed the magic million last night, pulling 1.02m viewers for Nine, its highest episode all year.
That was enough to beat 800 Words which lifted to 624,000 this week, plus NCIS and Catalyst.
The Block continued to power for Nine at 1.34m viewers, more than double its competition, Australian Survivor, 7:30, First Dates and Secrets of our Cities -all were down on last week.
Comedy fired for Nine with decade-old Kath & Kim reruns even ahead of what Seven could offer at 7:30pm. That’s gotta hurt given Seven produced the very same episodes back in 2007.
Seven News, The Chase and A Current Affair all won their slots.
