Redesign My Brain outsmarts the competition
Ratings: Todd Sampson has the smarts for ABC and MasterChef cooks up a storm on TEN -but Nine wins the night.
The return of Todd Sampson’s Redesign My Brain was a winner for ABC, topping its timeslot on 675,000 and trending on Twitter.
But on a relatively quiet night it was MasterChef at #1 in Total People and in Demos, creating headaches for rivals.
Nine network won Thursday with 26.6% then Seven 26.1%, TEN 24.0%, ABC 17.2% and SBS 6.0%.
Nine was under the magic million with Nine News (992,000 / 945,000), ACA (879,000), The Footy Show (649,000), Hot Seat (596,000) and Top Gear (531,000) -the latter will be lucky to survive in its timeslot on those numbers.
Seven News won its timeslot on 1.02m / 946,000 then Home and Away (716,000), Million Dollar Minute (513,000), House Rules (379,000 in 2 cities), Movie: The Sapphires (363,000) and Border Security: International (287,000 in 3 cities).
