Masterchef Australia (Image: Ten)

Another very weak Tuesday night that made Netflix, Stan and anything else interesting.

Nine had nothing, Seven had the flat House Rules again which couldn’t get to a million national viewers (879,000) with Nine running dead and the ABC weak. 

MasterChef Australia took advantage and grabbed 1.31 million national viewers to be the most watched non-news program on the night.

Seven’s hour of news averaged 1.93 million — around 480,000 ahead of Nine’s hour’s average of 1.46 million. That was enough to give Seven a win on a very lackluster night and yet another example of why streaming video is proving so popular.

Nine was second, Ten third, but grabbed the demos.

In the regions, Seven News, 755,000, Seven News 6.30, 696,000, The Chase Australia 5.30pm, 458,000, Home and Away, 423,000, 7pm ABC News, 394,000.
