Stargazing Live down, TEN takes entertainment slots.
Ratings: MasterChef and Shark Tank score for TEN. Who Do You Think You Are? improves for SBS.
ABC’s Stargazing Live event with Prof. Brian Cox & Julia Zemiro was down on 2017, despite an earlier start.
Last year it drew 585,000 at 8:30pm but this year it averaged 463,000 from 8pm.
That was third in its slot behind MasterChef Australia, strong at 877,000 with an immunity pin win, House Rules and Eat Well For Less? SBS factual series Who Do You Think You Are? may have been last for SBS but at 376,000 it will probably top their week.
