MasterChef leads entertainment shows, Seven wins despite Super Switch fail.
Ratings: Seven schedule demonstrates how to win the night even when your big primetime show is a turkey.
It’s a testament to Seven that their strong early evening line-up has helped save their bacon on a night when a key primetime show under-performed.
Seven News and Home & Away, together with The Front Bar made up for The Super Switch failing in its third outing. Much credit goes to The Chase pulling stellar numbers ahead of primetime, stronger for them than anything outside of 6pm news.
