A big night for Ten – their biggest of the year in fact. MasterChef Australia (2nd – 1,215,000) has a massive run which benefits Offspring (6th – 981,000). Family Feud (20th – 657,000) drops from night two but still solid for the Network. Repeats and obdocs don’t even try to compete with the 7:30pm offering.
