A slow Wednesday night – lots of programming, but not a lot of interest. Australia’s Got Talent (3rd – 1,165,000) won it’s timeslot as the semi’s commence and while 1.165m is good figures it pales in comparison to the elephant in the room that is The Voice Australia (the measure of all future series). The Block (5th – 1,119,000) continues to win 7pm though MasterChef Australia (Top 50 6th – 1,025,000) is knocking on the door for the first time this season. Given it’s only week one, could it be that The Block could be quickly usurped? Randling (17th – 621,000) down 250K on week one numbers.
