Nine’s Two and a Half Men sheds viewers as Seven dominates

In the Tuesday night TV ratings, Nine’s Two And A Half Men was down 159,000 viewers on last week’s showing, as NCIS – Ten’s only show in the top ten – beat it comfortably in the 8.30pm timeslot.

Two episodes of The Big Bang Theory were Nine’s only non-news programs to make the top ten.

Mike & Molly, which replaced the bumped The Joy Of Sets, fared little better in the timeslot for Nine, rating 557,000.

Seven dominated the night with the top five most-watched shows, and 27.7% share, according to preliminary metro ratings from OzTam.

Family drama Packed to the Rafters won the night with 1.605m, followed by The X Factor with 1.418m, and Seven News with 1.164m. Today Tonight and Home and Away completed the top-five roadblock for Seven.
