Same old story: cue the beast/monster (AKA My Kitchen Rules), this time with a record setting meal from WA, and the night is all over, although the final week of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here gave some cheek for Ten. My Kitchen Rules had 2.526 million national viewers, including 1.78 million in metro markets and 746,000 in the regions. I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here had 1.079 million for the eviction and 933,000 for the rest, or a solid 971,000 across the whole program. Nine’s episode of The Block averaged 1.077 million, which is barely OK seeing Nine had such high hopes for it.

And that was the night — another one program story, with great casting by Seven and its production crew. It’s very hard to write about a night when one program swallows the audience, but Ten’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here continues to warm up nicely. Time for a renewal, I think.

Losers: No one really, there was enough stuff there for most viewers. Insight and Dateline on SBS were quite solid last night. A nasty fall for Studio 10 yesterday morning to just 32,000 viewers. That’s Wake Up territory (I hope it is a one off).Metro news and current affairs:
