The Voice did it for Nine, helped by 60 Minutes, which benefited from having such a strong lead-in. Ten struggled. It had a tiny advantage in All People in the metros over the ABC, but in the main channels ABC1 was well ahead in the battle for third spot. In the regions it was closer, with Nine winning by less than half its metro 10 point margin. But the ABC easily beat Ten into third. Ten is not getting any lift at all in regional markets from the return of MasterChef. It is a metro program, unlike The Voice and House Rules which both had more than 700,000 regional viewers last night — very high audience figures.
