My Kitchen Rules lifted its audience on Wednesday night as Adelaide’s “Princess” was forced to prove her cooking skills. The show nudged over the 1.5m mark, which is impressive given the show has just started.
But it was Nine’s coverage of the T20 cricket that helped it win the night by a solid margin.
Nine’s share was 35.5% to Seven’s 28.6%, with TEN on 19.1%. The Cricket averaged 1.46m viewers in Preliminary results, but ran overtime into an Excess Baggage replay. Unfortunately, the 974,000 the latter supposedly nabbed will need to be adjusted.
Without Excess Baggage in the same timeslot, The Biggest Loser managed 757,000, which is only slightly above that it pulled on Tuesday when EB was going head to head. Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation returned with 678,000 viewers. The Good Wife was 590,000.
ABC News was 862,000 and Qi was 544,000. Outnumbered pulled 423,000.
From Sydney to Tokyo By Any Means was 204,000 for SBS ONE.
In morning TV Sunrise was 366,000 to Today 355,000 but Nine won Sydney and Melbourne.
