Nine’s 60 Minutes (772,000 nationally) again failed to hold the 1.6 million plus who watched Lego Masters last night.

The turn-off was over 50% of the Lego audience, or 838,000 viewers, which is a real kick in the remote for 60 Minutes, Nine’s stalwart.

Nine won the night from Seven, which showed its hand about the future of the expensive and under-performing House Rules -- it doubled up episodes from 7pm to 9.30pm -- it averaged 1.03 million across the 150 minutes. It is always a sign of a former star program’s doubtful future when the TV network doubles up episodes in prime time. Seven just wants to be rid of it.
