MasterChef Australia (1st – 1,331,000) continues to lead at 7pm, 7:30pm and for the night now that the cast is at a viewer-manageable size. More good news for Ch10 with the season four finale of Offspring (5th – 1,086,000) delivering both viewers and a wonderful ending. What is surprising is the audience drawn by Mrs Brown’s Boys (4th – 1,106,000) over Australia’s Got Talent (10th – 918,000), especially considering the latter is in grand finals mode. Myf Warhurst’s Nice (17th – 522,00) remained stoic in the face of dire ratings for Randling (25th – 363,000). Tricky Business (31st – 311,000) starts it’s run to the finish as expected given it’s new timeslot.
