Seven took 4 cities but Nine just snared Sydney.

Now that MKR has departed and The Voice is in play, this week the contest will be a lot closer.

  1. i guess this means more series of MKR for the next few years at least, ugh! i watched 2012 & 13, but mostly in the background while doing other stuff. This year i was a bit over it, looked to me like the worst series ever, boring contestants, episodes too long with too many ads etc.

    I am glad to see 7 as the #1 network though, i think its well deserved, but i can see signs already they are starting to abuse that power, starting shows late etc, hope they don’t get as bad as nine!
