Another big night for My Kitchen Rules (1st – 1,978,000) with the first of the gatecrashers bringing the not-so-goods. Packed To The Rafters (2nd – 1,341,000) follows on and rides the ratings wave, while for the second night running The Block All Stars (5th – 1,095,000) not only sits above one million viewers but takes 7pm – it’s like viewers have suddenly realised it was on. The 6pm battle continues to heat up with Nine News (3rd – 1,215,000) beating Seven News (4th – 1,1145,000) nationally and East Coast (and each East Coast state respectively). MasterChef The Professionals again doesn’t feature in the Top 20, meaning it rated less than Two Broke Girls (20th – 521,000)(!), but the ever-solid NCIS (14th – 625,000) Ch10’s top non-News performer.
