Seven won Tuesday night with My Kitchen Rules the #1 show for the second night in a row.
The cook-off pulled 1.46m viewers, down slightly from its 1.48m premiere. Seven led the night from 6pm with Home and Away (1.09m) still out in front of the weight-loss battle. The movie Holiday was 798,000.
Nine’s Excess Baggage lost ground on its second outing, down to 625,000 viewers and beaten by The Biggest Loser (712,000). That left Big Bang Theory repeats (647,000 / 724,000) to try to rebuild. Two and a Half Men was 601,000. Sadly the new AACTA Awards averaged 314,000 across their late-night broadcast. It may have revamped on stage but it will take time to excite the audience.
Best for TEN was an NCIS repeat on 734,000 then TEN News (731,000) and The Biggest Loser. Bondi Vet returned to 631,000 and The Project was 489,000.
ABC News was second in its slot with 994,000 with 7:30 on 654,000. Cane Toads: The Conquest was 499,000 and Nigella Kitchen 488,000.
A repeat of Who Do You Think You Are? was best for SBS on 290,000.
