Monday night Reality check
The Block and MasterChef continue a battle for first place on Monday night, but The Renovators beats The Amazing Race Australia.
Two Reality shows are in a tussle for first place at the moment.
On Sunday night it was The Block, on Monday it was MasterChef Australia.
The cooking show pulled out 1.67m viewers in an emotionally-driven episode in which “loved ones” visited the final five, Survivor-style. Nobody was eliminated from the show as it runs out its final two weeks.
It ranked ahead of The Block‘s 1.48m viewers, which easily won at 7pm, but Nine is claiming a win for the overlapping thirty minutes when they were head to head.
There was another Reality battle at 8:30pm with newcomer The Renovators lifting from its opening episode, to 978,000 and winning over The Amazing Race Australia (963,000). Four Corners / Media Watch (867,000 / 732,000), Rescue Special Ops (818,000) and Man vs. Wild (205,000) all followed.
Elsewhere last night The Big Bang Theory was 941,000, Border Security / Crash Investigation Unit (877,000 / 737,000), 7:30 / Australian Story (660,000 / 839,000) and Mythbusters (284,000).
With its late timeslot Can Of Worms had to settle for 591,000 while Q & A‘s Tassie trip was 580,000.
A Tour De France Special Cadel: Le Triomphe was 169,000 for SBS.
Neighbours was tops on multichannels with 385,000.
Nine won its second night of the week.
