A solid night for Ten with both MasterChef Australia (2nd – 1,128,000) and Offspring (8th – 905,000) performing well enough to see away The X Factor Australia (4th – 1,079,000) and The Voice Kids Australia (11th – 806,000) – the latter essentially bombing. Reality singing saturation point reached! Family Feud (16th – 647,000) also remains consistent for the network, though still being simulcast on Eleven as well as Ten.
