The real story from last night was the way MasterChef: The Professionals was dispatched to the back of the kitchen by My Kitchen Rules.

The Glenn Dyer breakdown: Packed To The Rafters averaged more than 1.4 million viewers (and 2.196 million nationally), but it is a shadow of its old self and needed the strong lead-in from My Kitchen Rules (more than 1.6 million metro viewers and 2.480 million nationally).

But the real story from last night was the way MasterChef: The Professionals was dispatched to the back of the kitchen by My Kitchen Rules. MasterChef: The Professionals had 729,000 metro viewers, with only My Kitchen Rules up against it. MasterChef: The Professionals‘s national audience fell to 965,000 from more than 1.4 million a week ago.

One thought on “Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: MasterChef off the boil

    Hi Glenn,

    Just as a thought re US Update in your TV Ratings column; I seem to remember “Let’s Make A Deal” being around some time before “Deal or no Deal” and the Aussie version had Vince Sorrenti as the host – Channel 10 I think – so I’m questioning how the former can be a rip-off of the latter.

    I’m always happy to be put right of course…
