My Kitchen Rules ruled again last night with just on 2.2 million viewers. Seven’s Winter developed a bit of a chill in so far as viewers are concerned — their hands seemed frozen on other channels from 9pm, or they went to bed judging by the 150,000 drop in the national audience to 1.149 million. It still won the 9pm slot quite easily. The Block averaged 1.069 million and Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell averaged 940,000 — both were down a touch from a week earlier.  Ten’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here (853,000) also lost a little ground from the previous week, but Ten had another solid night, though Wonderland (588,000 national viewers) continues to drag the night down for the network. On pay TV, real estate ruled with Selling Houses Australia topping the night with 170,000 viewers on LifeStyle. Gogglebox Australia had 107,000 viewers, also on LifeStyle. It’s on Ten tonight.
