  1. To be fair they have been promoting it on air for over 2 weeks in the style of a “fake” finale week then the “real finale week” promos saying 2 part finale. I don’t watch a lot on 10 at the moment but when I have, it was bombarded with promos for masterchefs finale weeks, bachelorette and HYBPA

  2. 10 could have done a better job promoting the finale, I wouldn’t have known about it if not for TV Tonight – and thats with me being a casual viewer, watching most episodes. However, good numbers nonetheless – I hope there is a second (fourth) season!
