Later in the night, Party Tricks had a good debut for TEN at 710,000 viewers given recent outings. Both shows helped to push TEN in front of ABC for Monday night -a rarity.

While Nine won the night in primary figures, Seven’s multichannels got it over the line in Total People.

Seven Network won the night with a 29.4% share then Nine 29.2%, TEN 19.9%, ABC 17.9% and SBS 3.8%.

The Project (1.19m / 793,000) topped TEN’s night followed by the debut of Party Tricks (710,000) -second in its slot. But the new drama had to rebuild from its lead in of Gold Coast Cops (698,000) and especially Territory Cops (575,000). TEN Eyewitness News was 657,000 and a refreshed Homeland returned with 307,000 / 208,000.

  1. Great to see Ten get a over a Million at this timeslot. I wonder when was the last time they did that……a long long long time ago I would suggest!!!

    Yeah David, I second what Jonno wrote. You’ve done plenty to let us know when Homeland was starting and it was listed on your calendar page, which I usually check but didn’t last night. Double-eps usually indicate a series rerun (or being burnt off) and it’s partly my fault for not checking more closely.

    No biggie, there are plenty of options for catching it and I wouldn’t be surprised if Ten repeat, sorry, encore it later in the week. However, 9:30pm is too late to start a two-hour broadcast for many people who have work/study the next day.
