TEN snares primetime slots on Wednesday

For the second night in a row TEN landed a 1 – 2 punch in key timeslots with both Masterchef and Offspring winning against the competition.

MasterChef drew 904,000, well up on last week’s 761,000 (against Origin). It defeated Britain’s Got Talent and Border Security / The Force. In fact Anh’s Brush with Fame bettered Seven and Nine offerings too.

The return of Offspring drew 724,000, which although it was down on 2016’s premiere of 959,000, was enough to top Mad as Hell and Criminal Minds -both of which improved on last week.

TEN not only scored the top 2 demos -it very nearly managed a clean sweep of the top 3 with The Project.

SBS doco Filthy Rich & Homeless was on par with its first night, a good result.

OzTAM Overnights: Wednesday 28 June 2017



    • Yes. As much as I enjoyed Ronny Chieng due to my geeky, teenage years, the subject matter (fixing a computer virus to win a girl’s heart) was very niche and barely able to fill a 30 min show.
      Bring on Utopia.

  1. jezza the first original one

    Masterchef…Arum…he is still in there despite the editing giving the impression he was gonna stuff up. In fact him and Eliza did a great job. He really should consider applying for Survivor next year if ch10 are still around. I hope Diana gets through tonight, she is the highlight of the show for me……
