Tuesday TV Wrap: MasterChef Grand Finale Does The Numbers, Peaks At 930,000

After a long, long season, last night saw part two of the MasterChef grand finale (the grand-er finale?).

It has officially beaten Big Brother, Celebrity Apprentice and Australian Ninja Warrior for grand finale and winner announcement ratings.

B&T broke down the comparisons yesterday but, according to OzTAM’s metro data, MasterChef’s finale managed to just beat Australian Ninja Warrior . The winner’s announcement scored 930,000 viewers while the rest of the episode peaked at 824,000. In contrast, ANW numbers were 918,000 for the winner’s announcement and 815,000 for the rest of the ep.

Now to the juicy stuff: spoilers. The crown went to Justin, in a classic surprise twist ending, as he’d entered the final on less points than competitors Kishwar and Pete. Look, everyone loves an underdog, especially one that can cook well!

On top overall was Seven News, reclaiming the title from Nine News, which came second. The shows had 1,154,000 and 1,078,000 viewers respectively.

After MasterChef was A Current Affair with 779,000 viewers while ABC News had 748,000.

Coming second overall in entertainment ratings was Home and Away, which had 635,000 viewers. It just outperformed Farmer Wants A Wife, which had 632,000. The Chase  was also up there with 600,000.

On Nine, Beauty and the Geek had 577,000 viewers while Hot Seat had 527,000.

For 10, The Project scored 503,000 and 10 News First had 384,000 viewers.

The ABC also had a packed night of programming. 7.30 netted 630,000 viewers while doco Ms Represented With Annabel Crabb – a showcase of the experiences of women in politics on the 100 year anniversary of Australia electing its first female representative – had 583,000.

Cracking Covid had 336,000 (we’re assuming cracking as in investigating, not the synonym for ‘great’ à la Wallace and Gromit).

It was a fairly close race between the Networks for control of the daily share. The Seven Network came out on top with 26.3 per cent, followed by the Nine Network with 25.9 per cent and Network 10 with 23.5 per cent.

The ABC Network had 15.6 per cent and the SBS Network had 8.7 per cent.
