The arrival of MasterChef has improved TEN’s fortunes, lifting from 14.4% a week ago to 18.6% this week.
But Seven won another week, by just 0.1% after Nine lost its lead with another Saturday night of The Voice replays.
That said, it was Seven’s House Rules that was the real loser in Reality stakes last week as the network dropped in channel share. My Kitchen Rules however, did deliver.
It’s now May and Nine is yet to win a week in Total People, if it doesn’t seize the lead the year will run away before we know it…
7mate / 9GO!: 3.7
ABC News: 1.3
SBS VICELAND: 1.1
SBS Food Network: 0.9
ABC ME: 0.6
