OzTAM Overnights: Sunday June 15 2014.


  1. I suspect that viewers are tiring from the voice and tuning into MC. House rules is holding well. Just needs more sydney viewers to out rate the voice on sunday nights.

  2. Ah Masterchef – sure it is manipulated, but still preferable to the bitchiness of MKR.
    Marco giving that little pep talk to poor Byron was quite a special moment.
    Anyway, good that Channel 10 are getting better ratings for the franchise this season.
    Could Channel 7 rethink their decision to axe A Place to call Home? I hope they do, it is a quality series, well produced and acted. The ratings would suggest that not only the over 50s are watching it.

  3. Thanks David for choosing that photo to highlight this section.
    ZK stole the show and I hope will go all the way to the Final of The Voice.

  4. Glad to see Masterchef slowly creeping up in the ratings. Great season this year. Hard to pick a favorite as I like so many of the contestants.
