Later How to Stay Married drew 439,000 then Catalyst (355,000) and First Dates (341,000 / 252,000).

Seven network won Tuesday with 27.4% then Nine 24.2%, 10 22.9%, ABC 16.2% and SBS 9.2%.

  1. Watching the Today show with David Campbell was punishing, all he does is smile and say ridiculous things and seems so fake, I had to switch off and I’m a loyal Today show viewer. Time to build up the ratings again after putting more B grade people in the chair.
