What a night indeed for Seven – the first team’s elimination from House Rules (1st – 1,703,000) made their two-hour epic episode, coupled with the season finale for Revenge (9th – 926,000), see away The Voice Australia (3rd – 1,425,000) and the S03 premiere of House Husbands (10th – 891,000). MasterChef Australia (12th – 830,000) continues to bubble along as a distant third in the 7:30pm reality stakes but it was by far Ten’s best effort for Monday – while 24: Live Another Day (30th – 313,000) & Have You Been Paying Attention? (58th – 215,000) seem to be sliding into the largely-ignored ether (sadly).
