Big Adventure dips but Seven wins Sunday
Ratings: With Telethon in Perth, scheduling was a little erratic, but TEN improves while Seven's new adventure slips.
This saw The Big Adventure air at 8:30pm, Sunday Night was on 7TWO and Resurrection did not air in that market.
But Seven may be concerned at the numbers for The Big Adventure in several markets where there were no such interruptions.
It lost to The Embassy in 4 cities (by just a 1,000 in Adelaide), and in Sydney it was third behind Scorpion. Tonight will be a more level battlefield.

Nine’s early evening line-up did well. 60 Minutes topped the night at 1.06m followed by Nine News (980,000), The Embassy (882,000), then Gotham (626,000). Movie: Batman was just 217,000.
