A lengthy Australian Ninja Warrior, finishing at around 9:15 may not have won its slot, but it helped Nine to claim victory on Monday.
MasterChef Australia won with 918,000 ahead of Australian Ninja Warrior on 888,000 and House Rules on 829,000. TEN also topped the demos. Once MasterChef finished at around 8:45, Nine remained in front for another half hour.
That helped Big Bang Theory won with 764,000 ahead of Have You Been Paying Attention? on 744,000 and Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back on just 403,000. Strictly speaking Four Corners on 562,000 was not in the same timeslot.
Due to TEN stunt roadblocking Pointless across three channels, separate figures are not available, while network share overall was on par with last week. ABC’s Q&A appeared to be down slightly without its standard politicking, at 372,000.
Seven News, ACA and The Chase again won early slots.
