Seven ratings week sizzles
Ratings: MKR wrapped with just under 2m viewers, with Seven's share this year now the biggest gap it has ever had over Nine.
Seven’s reign with My Kitchen Rules finished last week with the show nudging the 2 million mark for the finale.
Once again it has underpinned Seven’s entire first quarter for 2016, giving it the biggest lead the network has ever enjoyed over Nine.
All eyes are now on the new battle for 7:30 between The Voice, MasterChef and House Rules.
Here’s how last week stacked up. Will it be some time before we see these shares again?
