In a slow night for entertainment telly, MasterChef led the pack with 570,000 viewers according to OzTAM’s metro data.
The first immunity challenge of the season saw experimental chef Heston Blumenthal task the contestants with creating a dessert out of popular breakfast foods. If the sound of avocado ice cream tickles your tastebuds, Thursday night’s episode was definitely not to be missed.

For 10, The Project scored a neat 400,000 viewers while 10 News First had 344,000. Not quite as big a ratings hit as Oprah’s Meghan and Harry interview, royal doco William and Catherine: Saving The Crown netted 336,000 viewers.
Finally, Nine’s programming also included Thursday night’s NRL game which saw the Rabbitohs beat the Canberra Raiders to 334,000 viewers.
