A great result for the second last episode of MasterChef Australia (1st – 1,520,000), and considering it ran a little overtime it didn’t hurt Being Lara Bingle (9th – 931,000) though no adjusted figures available to correct it as yet. Winners and Losers (5th – 1,026,000) continues to do only OK for Ch7 (in comparison to Rafters) and there was no way Once Upon A Time (10th – 855,000) was going to compete with the semi-final of MasterChef. As for Channel 9… the Olympics can come soon enough.

UPDATE: The adjusted ratings for Being Lara Bingle slide it to 10th with 790,000 viewers.
