Australian Idol had a massive fall last night – down to 370 000, but still slightly ahead of Australian Survivor. The Front Bar returned with an All Sport edition to 315 000 viewers. The show was strong in its usual market of Melbourne but Seven would not be happy with the 59 000 viewer number in Sydney and the 27 000 figure in Brisbane. Seven ran a repeat of Kitchen Nightmares Australia to 104 000 after 10pm. Seven ran Police Code Zero: Officer Under Attack late night to 55 000.
