Last night Seven dominated viewing, leading across all slots, thanks to the My Kitchen Rules finale.

The finale topped all demos with the biggest audience in Sydney, not Melbourne.

The good news for Nine was The Voice barely wavered, pulling 1.02m viewers and almost replicating last Sunday’s 1.06m.  ABC’s Absolutely Champers special managed third place with 511,000.

Against such competition it was a tough night for TEN, with an All Star Family Feud special on an all-time low of just 160,000 -in last place behind SBS.

  1. No surprises with Seven winning the night.

    A disappointing night for Ten. The numbers for the All-Stars Family Feud is too low for anyone!

    I had hoped that more had tuned in for the first run of Red Obsession on SBS. Its a great doco, which did win Best AACTA Documentary a few years back.

  2. Started watching my first MKR of the year but it was too much like Masterchef.

    Switched to The Voice: after umpteen years they are doing well to have viewers.

    Seven are warning that the New House rules which features no contestants just one snarky judge is coming. Heaven forbid they use the same footy commentator voiceover guy from MKR.
