Even against Kylie and Tony Abbott, MasterChef passes 2.4m again …..0r was that because of Tony Abbott?
TEN’s cook-off rose to 2.46m last night and is on track to break another record tonight just as ABC launches its new channel. The nation is hooked on whether Adam, Callum or Claire will fall at the last hurdle.
TEN thumped the competition with Hey Hey having to settle for 1.17m (averaged across two hours). Its figures are yet to be amended for its overrun.
But it was Seven that was steamrolled last night. World’s Strictest Parents (UK) slumped to 740,000 which did City Homicide no favours on 808,000. The Suspects – True Australian Thrillers sank even lower on 633,000.
Many of the audience seemed to shift from TEN to ABC1 with The Gruen Transfer enjoying 1.28m and Spicks and Specks on 1.17m.
Also yesterday, The 7PM Project cleared the 1m mark again (1.02m) second to ABC News (1.07m), and Sunrise (408,000) dominated Today (288,000).
ABC3’s youth-presented News on 3 also made the Top 100, on 105,000.
TEN won the night in both primary and combined network figures. It continues to lead the week, with just 0.5% splitting Nine and Seven in network figures.
