MasterChef lifts TEN’s Thursday
Ratings: Without other reality competition MasterChef improves TEN's share, but Nine takes the night.
A double serving of MasterChef proved tasty to TEN last night, as the sole reality offering at 7:30pm. It lifted TEN to a healthy share (although a reader notes TEN slipped up with a promo revealing who was absent from its later Masterclass episode).
But it was Nine that won the night with a share of 28.8% then Seven 25.8%, TEN 21.5%, ABC 18.8% and SBS 5.2%.
