A quiet Thursday means MasterChef Australia (3rd – 1,086,000) is allowed to shine by tipping over the million and being head and shoulders above the other 7:30pm offerings. Nine interestingly is bumped to third in this timeslot though wins all others to take the night. The Time Of Our Lives (16th – 642,000) continues in the 8:30pm timeslot though struggles against the FTA offerings (which is crazy because it’s excellent drama).

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Nine News – Ch9
6:30pm: Nine News 6:30 – Ch9
7:00pm: A Current Affair – Ch9
7:30pm: MasterChef Australia – Ch10
8:30pm: The Footy Show(s) (1st hour) – Ch9
