While My Kitchen Rules (1st – 1,602,000) is streets ahead of the pack there seems to be little care for what follows it – How To Get Away With Murder (15th – 609,000) dropping a whopping one million viewers from the lead-in, confirming suggestions that a 9pm drama start is still a mental hurdle for most Australians (to it’s credit it is the highest catch-up show from last week, adding 174,000 to the 587,000 it got from overnights last week). New The Big Bang Theory (871,000) always rates for Nine, though this was a big drop on past eps. The Block Triple Threat (11th – 726,000) and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here (13th – 668,000) back to their usual viewing levels though the latter will have made no friends with NCIS (17th – 604,000) fans after running near 15 minutes over the advertised finish time.
