High drama on the high seas? Or maybe just in port….
In any case, TEN won Wednesday night thanks to a new season high for MasterChef Australia, pulling 1.96m viewers last night.
The group challenge aboard P&O’s Pacific Jewel clearly captured the imagination of viewers, which as good as doubled the competition.
Hey Hey it’s Saturday had to settle for 1.03m while Dog Squad / Surf Patrol were 907,000 / 821,000 for Seven.
In primary channels TEN took 26.1% to Seven’s 23.9% and Nine’s 23.7%. With 7TWO and GO! adding to the mix TEN’s rivals made up some ground, but for once it still wasn’t enough to overtake TEN in network figures.
Elsewhere last night The Pacific finished on 978,000, even beaten by Spicks and Specks on 1.12m. while Lowdown had a big lift from 422,000 last week to 580,000.
Deal or No Deal‘s $200,000 giveaway worked, rising to 877,000 helping Seven News take almost 1.6m. Expect more Spoiler promos in the future.
Dance Academy made the Top 100 for ABC1 with 101,000.
