It looks like viewers won’t be swayed from the MasterChef kitchen/s in its final weeks with the show thumping the opposition in the early evenings.
With The Block gone and too many having missed early episodes of Australia’s Got Talent because of The Voice, they are now locked onto TEN’s reality cook-off. Last night it pulled 1.33m viewers while AGT was 918,000 and The Voice US slipped further to 584,000.
Seven won the night with 29.3% to TEN 26.2%, Nine 19.9%, ABC 15.2% and SBS impressed with a very strong 9.3%.
