Another light Thursday, other than Ch9 & London Live (Evening: 1st – 1,789,000; Early Evening: 2nd – 1,633,000). MasterChef Australia All Stars (10th – 741,000) continues to deliver the goods for Ch10, though with two All Stars vanishing each elimination it’s only a week until it’s over. Ch10’s Thursday Night Football (28th – 293,000) is struggling against the Olympics and Ch9’s Footy Show(s) when screened, but building this audience could be easier than expected if, as rumoured, the network gets the upper hand in the NRL broadcast rights bidding.
