Room for all in reality battle
Ratings: Ninja, MasterChef & House Rules all enjoy big crowds in the latest ratings week.
As unlikely as it seems there is room for three big reality shows to find audiences in the same timeslot.
Last Sunday Ninja Warrior drew 943,000 viewers, just ahead of House Rules on 928,000 and MasterChef’s 854,000. The following night MasterChef led with 918,000 to Ninja’s 889,000 and House Rules‘ 829,000. It may be worth remembering as we head to a change-over of three new shows The Block, Dance Boss and Australian Survivor.
Seven enjoyed another win last week, its 20th week this year (including one Commonwealth Games week).
