The Glenn Dyer breakdown: Seven won easily as My Kitchen Rules again blitzed the night — more than 2.1 million metro viewers and 3.011 million nationally. As a result, Seven widened its lead over Nine in both the metro and regional markets where MKR was again dominant. Revenge averaged 1.295 million metro viewers and over 1.8 million nationally, which is more than OK, but down from those fabulous highs of a year ago.
Ten was again squeezed into a distant fourth spot. MasterChef: The Professionals had 528,000 metro viewers and 704,000 nationally. That’s its “normal” level with MKR on Seven (it’s double that on Sundays when MKR isn’t on air). Nine’s The Block All Stars ran for an hour and a half last night. It averaged 1.080 million for the 90 minutes (and 1.6 million nationally), while the fresh episode of Big Bang Theory averaged 1.140 million (1.86 million nationally). That’s OK, but it was nowhere near enough to topple Seven. Ten should do better tonight with NCIS in the schedule.
