  1. That is an astonishing performace from MasterChef for a show in its 16th season. It also won the lucrative 16-39 demographic.

    Farmer wants a wife seems to be on top thanks to all the older viewers. Lego and the cooking more popular with younger and middle aged people.

    1. Zero promotion for it and it has been on pay TV for a while now-one did have to have some background knowledge in Russian/Soviet history to make much sense of it though.
