With The Voice Australia (1st – 1,301,000) establishing itself the main casualty is MasterChef Australia (6th – 993,000), while House Rules (8th – 942,000) slides in just behind. Two specials on ABC fare well against the reality noise – When Attenborough Met Obama (12th – 711,000) and Arthur Phillip: Governor, Sailor, Spy (11th – 763,000). Only broadcast in 3 of the 5 City Metro capitals the EJ Whitten Legends Game (18th – 582,000) does good business for Nine.
