Monday night continues to be the biggest night of television all round, with The Voice (1st – 1,979,000) leading the charge, followed by Revenge (2nd – 1,469,000) and The Block (4th – 1,333,000). Even Q&A (12th – 816,000) with the Barry Humphries and Miriam Margolyes show. With 10 shows pitching above one million viewers, that’s a lot of business for the four main networks. MasterChef Australia (8th – 1,040,000) still the perennial bridesmaid and Tricky Business (16th – 692,000) struggling to find an audience – which is a real shame as it’s high quality, authentic Aussie drama. It seems even the best lead-in in the business can’t help sometimes.
