Australia, for now, has a fascination with televised magic that is hard to explain other than Seven trotting out their latest wonderboy for a special when ever they need the ratings love. Cosentino: The Magic The Mystery The Madness (4th – 1,022,000) drew the highest non-News crowd for the night, beating the finale of Great Australian Bake Off (13th – 760,000) and the premiere of Recipe to Riches (19th – 616,000) – though the former likely cannibalised the latter in the 8:30pm timeslot.
Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Nine News – Ch9
6:30pm: A Curent Affair – Ch9
7:00pm: Home and Away – Ch7
7:30pm: Cosentino: The Magic The Mystery The Madness – Ch7
