The battle of the Baden-Clay interviews saw 60 Minutes (1st – 1,411,000) triumph soundly over Sunday Night (11th – 873,000), with the latter experiencing no halo from the successful The X Factor Australia (4th – 1,274,000) before it – which only just beat out The Voice Kids Australia (5th – 1,227,000). House Husbands (6th – 1,168,000) did well as a follow on and with no real competition in the abridged timeslot. Extant (16th – 556,000) only slides further with its second ep. MasterChef Australia (7th – 1,076,000) enters finals week showing the reconstructed series still has legs.
