DRAMA se­ries Win­ners & Losers has picked up in the rat­ings, top­ping a mil­lion view­ers af­ter the third sea­son started with ques­tion­able fig­ures. The Chan­nel 7 drama has picked up more than 200,000 view­ers since it re­turned with a medi­ocre au­di­ence of 798,000 on July 9.

Tues­day’s sixth episode pulled 1.065 mil­lion view­ers to be the fifth most-watched show for the evening – its high­est fin­ish on the rat­ings ta­ble this year.

Air­ing im­me­di­ately af­ter the pop­u­lar The X Fac­tor cer­tainly helped.

Once again The X Fac­tor claimed the No.1 spot, with Seven’s TV tal­ent show at­tract­ing 1.554 mil­lion view­ers to beat news (Nine, 1.297 mil­lion; Seven, 1.238 mil­lion.

Nine’s re­al­ity show Big Brother is hold­ing its own in the Top 10 even if it’s not pulling mas­sive num­bers.

On Tues­day, Big Brother was ninth with an au­di­ence of 895,000.

Ten’s im­ported sci-fi drama Un­der The Dome was 10th with 846,000 fans tun­ing in.

On the break­fast front, Seven’s de­ci­sion to re­place long-time Sun­rise co-host Melissa Doyle with Sa­man­tha Army­tage has done the show no harm.

Army­tage started full-time in the chair on Mon­day and Sun­rise beat its main ri­val Nine’s To­day in the two sub­se­quent sur­veys.

Win­ners & Losers: Tues­days, 8.30pm, Seven, Prime7.
