For Channels 9 & 10, the end of My Kitchen Rules (1st – 1,899,000) cannot come quick enough. The shows they’re offering just aren’t getting any oxygen – even The Biggest Loser Australia (10th – 922,000) throwing the makeovers at it couldn’t dent it, even with it’s highest score this season. Ch9 only had five shows in the Top 10, THREE of which were The Big Bang Theory (7pm 11th – 865,000; 7:30pm 12th – 854,000; 8pm 8th – 1,001,000). Just as man cannot live by bread alone, a network cannot rate by Sheldon, Raj, et al alone.
