Just a day ahead of the return of Offspring, TEN has a spring in its step.
Last night it was the leading primary channel, with MasterChef hitting its best numbers all year, at 1.13m viewers. It trounced Seven and Nine offerings, both of which were under 700k. NCIS also led its timeslot. That leaves tonight as a very interesting battle as Offspring joins the fray….
Aside from Home and Away neither Seven nor Nine could manage an entertainment title above 700,000 last night. The Force managed 691,000 while both 20 to One and Britain’s Got Talent were down on last week.
