Of course My Kitchen Rules (1st – 1,688,000) wins but its what happens around it that’s interesting. The Block Triple Threat (13th – 755,000) dips a lot, while I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here (18th – 601,000) settles back to its weeknight standard. Australian Story (5th – 1,027,000) goes big thanks to a profile on the Leyland Brothers and Q&A (12th – 769,000) beats most things that ran earlier than it. Gallipoli (19th – 580,000) sinks though all scripted drama struggles at the moment and this starts to signify the importance of the long game for all drama to measure success – first run + catch up + SVOD (the entire series is available on Stan).
