  1. MasterChef and Ten getting bigger and better, so pleasing for the network. Beat Nine again on one night and end-of-week main channel share is close to Nine’s!

    Seven somehow up with yet another easy win, no doubt thanks to massive shares on Friday and Saturday.

    As Nine wave the white flag on Saturday night big time.
