  1. I bet Channel 7 will go close to topping the 3 million mark for the episode of MKR in which the two Asian girls cook.
    The whole Asian girls vs the Italian Mamas last night, contrived or not, was hilarious.

  2. The episode next week with Sophia and Ashlee doing the cooking will rate over 2.5M, I’m sure of it. It will go through the roof that night, which I think will be next Wednesday. The momentum for MKR this year is extraordinary, reminds me of the dominance of The Voice last year.

    The Block has not really gained a lot of traction this year, it is getting lost in the backwash of MKR, much like Excess Baggage did this time last year, though it is rating better than EB, but it is certainly not the hit Nine would have wished for.

  3. I can;t believe Ten are persisting with the project! For a slot like that they should be getting around 800,000 plus but are happy to settle for under 550,000 every night. Worst lead in show ever

  4. I feared for the third round of instant restraunts but wow last night was great TV. Next week looks awesome as tensions boil over. The first round of instant kitchens was great, the second was average but i feel this is the best of the lot!! Bravo
