MasterChef proved the pick of the entertainment shows last night and gave broadcaster 10 some of its best audience numbers in a while.
Nine actually won Sunday with 28.3 per cent of all last night’s eyeballs (all channels). Seven was second with 25.9 per cent, but 10 put in a gallant third with 22.3 per cent. That left the ABC with just 14.7 per cent and SBS had to settle for 8.8 per cent per cent.
The long-running cooking show, that featured celeb chef Rick Stein (see main photo), was the third most watched show last night with 552,000 viewers according to OzTAM metro numbers. Still, a significant drop when you consider back in its halcyon days MasterChef would consistently go over the million-mark.
As per usual, the 6pm news bulletins were the most watched shows of the evening, with Seven’s winning the night with 845,000 and Nine’s doing 757,000. 60 Minutes had 430,000.
And if you thought we’d all had enough of the whole Johnny Deep/Amber heard saga you’d probably be right – Nine’s Deep Vs Heard: Love and War not getting much love with 281,000.
Other standouts for Nine included a re-run of the original Top Gun movie with 279,000, while its afternoon league between the Panthers and the the Knights had 230,000.
Seven did well with 7 News Spotlight (533,000), Border Security (339,000) and Seven News at 5 (239,000).
MasterChef aside, 10’s doers were The Sunday Project (368,000), 10 News First (284,000) and NCIS Hawaii (251,000).
The ABC’s day went thus: 7pm news (532,000), Grand Designs Revisited (368,000), Insiders (260,000) and Landline (220,000).
