MasterChef Australia (1st – 1,330,000) again streaks to the top of the list with everyone interesting in Alice & Mindy’s battle for immunity. It was the high point for the network with NCIS (10th – 828,000) struggling to regain share and Being Lara Bingle (16th – 650,000) not helping as it’s lead in at all – that’s the lowest figures for the reality/doco yet. Winners and Losers (5th – 1,073,000) continues to maintain a strong audience as a part-time replacement for Packed To The Rafters. The Voice US (18th – 635,000) not drawing any of the love Ch9 may have hoped it would get – how long will the network persist with it on the primary channel when this could easily flip over to GO! and they could drop in Big Bang Theory (as much as it pains to mention it) and rate at least half that again. In fact it’s not great news for Ch9 full stop on Tuesday nights with nothing really drawing any decent eyes other than their NewsCAFF products. The final Pictures Of You (13th – 720,000) rounds out a wonderful yet unappreciated series, which really needs an earlier timeslot for season two (should it be commissioned).
Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Seven News – Ch7
6:30pm: Today Tonight – Ch7
7:00pm: MasterChef Australia – Ch10
7:30pm: MasterChef Australia/Being Lara Bingle – Ch10
