MasterChef was touted as Channel Ten’s “knight in shining armour” when it debuted last Monday night to 1.06 million, but seven days later some glaze appears to be coming of its ratings brûlée.

Last night’s MasterChef managed 767,000 viewers according to overnight OzTam numbers. In no way a disaster, but a significant dip (and its worst numbers) in just seven nights all the same.

As a comparison, Seven’s My Kitchen Rules regularly pulled in the 1.1-1.2 million range for its 2017 season.

Nine’s The Voice won last night’s battle of the reality shows with a respectable 1.08 million viewers. Overall, Nine and Seven shared the honours with 28.9 per cent of the audiences each. Ten held on to third spot with 17.5 per cent, leapfrogging the ABC with 14.6 per cent.

The SBS had a surprisingly strong night with 10.1 per cent, namely due to the A-League Grand Final being played on VICELAND.

Nine’s 60 Minutes (715,000) beat Seven’s Sunday Night (659,000), however, Seven’s news was the most watched show of the night with 1.18 million viewers.

Interestingly, the show Ten bought in to replace the disaster that was The Biggest Loser, Modern Family, is now enjoying ratings similar to its dumped predecessor, managing only 274,000.

Over at the ABC, its shows appeared down too, probably with viewers tuning in for the soccer grand final. Its news was the top billing of the night with 658,000. Grantchester managed 624,000, Doctor Who had 417,000 and DCI Banks pulled 316,000.
