The shock exit of Eliza from MasterChef Australia ensured it was the top entertainment show on a quiet Thursday.
It pulled 895,000 viewers, down slightly on last week and was back to topping the demos without those gleaming athletes anywhere in sight. RBT was second in the slot followed by a Make you LOL special.
But the good news was not to continue for TEN with Common Sense falling from 463,000 to 342,000 in its second outing. The season final of Janet King was higher at 480,000 while there were staggered playouts on Nine and Seven.
Nine News and ACA both won their slots.
