Last night’s finale of My Kitchen Rules pulled in 1.37 million viewers for Seven. However, on a gloomier note, it was the lowest-rating grand final ever, and the series was the least watched in its nine-year history.
On the back of the final cook-off, Seven won the night with 38.8 per cent audience share, while Nine was second with 30.9 per cent. ABC took bronze with 14.4 per cent, while there were very worrying signs over at Ten who could muster just 10.5 per cent. SBS had 5.4 per cent.
Seven also took the 6pm news prize beating rival Nine 1.14 million to 1.06 million respectively. While 60 Minutes (707,000) turned the tables on Sunday Night (683,000).
Thankfully for Nine, MKR’s finale didn’t do too much damage to The Voice that managed a respectable 1.02 million.
Meanwhile, Ten’s evening went from bad to worse. The Sunday Project pulled an uninspiring 343,000, Ten Eyewitness News had 281,000, Family Feud managed 197,000 and everybody had lost all interest by All Star Family Feud with just 160,000 tuning-in.
The ABC’s night went thus: ABC News (636,000), Joanna & Jennifer: Absolutely Champers (511,000), Midsomer Murders (344,000) and Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery (196,000). Over at SBS its best was The Celts with 190,000.
