A very, VERY slow Thursday night. MasterChef Australia (14th – 578,000) won the 7:30pm timeslot with the Budget 2014: Budget Reply (18th – 542,000) and 7:30 Budget Special: Budget Reply (11th – 605,000) hot on it’s heels. Dirty Laundry Live (168th – 80,000) returned and competed with Fargo (60th – 201,000) and sadly too few people watched either. Top Gear (23rd – 400,000) finished it’s 21st season with but a whimper.
