Nine’s night in the main channels because of Lego Masters – 1.913 million for the first episode. This lead-in didn’t pay off for 60 Minutes however — it averaged 808,000 nationally, meaning more than 1.1 million turned off.

Seven finished off My Kitchen Rules — 1.39 million for the winners’ announcement and 1.30 million for the lead up –or an average of 1.34 million across the two hours from 8pm to 10pm. That wasn’t great, but it did have help from House Rules which returned at 8.30pm with 1.23 million, up 29% from a year ago according to Seven.

Ten’s Bachelor in Paradise was squished between what was on Nine and Seven and could only manage 554,000 national viewers. Ten was a weak 4th last night behind the Vera-led ABC (972,000) and the 7pm News (945,000).

In daytime TV, Insiders at 9 to 10 am on the ABC dominated with 662,000 nationally. In regional markets Seven News with 561,000 topped Lego Masters with 536,000, then the My Kitchen Rules winners announcement with 451,000, House Rules with 450,000 and the My Kitchen Rules grand final with 428,000.
