Bigger and bigger and bigger. My Kitchen Rules (1st – 1,911,000) is proving to be massive business for Seven this year. It’s formula with slight twists is drawing more eyes than all previous seasons and we’re still only in the first third of the show. A delayed The Blacklist (8th – 909,000) slips below one million for the first time since it began – a sign fans have sourced it elsewhere. It’s a welcome return to Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell (16th – 543,000) and both it and Spicks and Specks (19th – 442,00) fare well against strong competition.
