18 year old Chris Doe was reportedly left in tears after being eliminated from The X Factor, but it will be Seven execs who may well be weeping today at the figures of 978,000 for the verdict edition of the show last night.
Slipping under the 1m mark without Junior MasterChef around is bad news. While it was whipped in Melbourne by the Brownlow Medal, it did benefit in Sydney with a healthy 367,000.
The Brownlow pulled 982,000 viewers for the night, with 667,000 in the host city and just 12,000 in Sydney on TEN (and another 12,000 live on ONE). Update: It drew a combined audience of 1.06 million viewers on the two channels.
A Current Affair‘s interview with Reg Grundy pipped Today Tonight with 1.35m over 1.33m.
TEN won the night.
