No surprises here – the long awaited meal of Ashlee & Sophia drew a massive crowd to see if they’d fail (they didn’t), and neither did Ch7 – My Kitchen Rules (1st – 2,355,000). It’s all reversed in the news hour with Seven News (2nd – 1,237,000) and Today Tonight (4th – 1,053,000) triumphing nationally over Nine News (3rd – 1,183,000) and A Current Affair (7th – 966,000). Mr and Mrs Murder (10th – 715,000) down on last week though again it’s lead-in wasn’t solid. Both Mad As Hell (16th – 574,000) & The Agony Of Life (17th – 573,000) solid in the mid-late 500’s and both performing reasonably against some very big commercial shows.
