Monday TV Wrap: MasterChef Debuts To 715K, Lego Goes Over The Million Mark

Monday TV Wrap: MasterChef Debuts To 715K, Lego Goes Over The Million Mark

Have viewers’ taste for cooking shows soured? That’s the question TV bosses must be asking after MasterChef debuted to an okayish 715,000 last night.

Following on from MKR’s lacklustre season, viewers’ eyeballs were again on Nine’s Lego Masters – that did 1.053 million according to OzTAM metro numbers – and not George, Matt and Gary.

Nor was anyone too keen on the ScoMo-Shorten leader’s debate either – it managed just 271,000.

Commenting on MasterChef’s numbers, 10’s chief content officer Beverley McGarvey: “After 11 years, it’s great to see audiences flock back to the MasterChef Australia kitchen with 905,000 national TV viewers tuning in to last night’s launch.

“The launch was up year on year on 10 Play and was the number one show across social platforms yesterday.”

On the back of Lego, Nine won the night with 29 per cent of the audience. Seven was inches behind with 28.1 per cent, 10 held on for a valiant third and 18.8 per cent, the ABC pulled 17.2 per cent and SBS had 6.9 per cent.

In the battle for breakfast, Sunrise (264,000) continued to dominate Today (198,000).

Nine’s other standouts were its 6pm news 999,000, ACA with 782,000, Hot Seat with 536,000 and 20 To One with 457,000.

Seven’s 6pm news had 1.029 million, Home And Away did 667,000 and House Rules was a little disappointing, notching up 561,000.

MasterChef aside, 10’s night ran thus: The Project (508,000), 10 News First (399,000) and a repeat of The Graham Norton Show (265,000).

The ABC’s traditional Monday of news and current affairs went this way: 7pm news (711,000), 7.30 (582,000), Media Watch (494,000), Four Corners (442,000) and Q&A (370,000).

Best for SBS was a repeat of Great American Railway Journeys with 210,000.
