Nine’s night as Lego Masters ended with 1.92 million for the winner’s announcement and 1.59 million for all the lead up -- a program average of 1.76 million.
It wasn’t as popular in regional areas -- it failed to break 500,000 viewers which is the level for out performance these days (Seven’s hour of news regularly tops that level). Lego Masters is more metro-type program (1.462 million in the metros, making it the most watched program in the major cap city markets).
Seven’s News between 6pm and 7pm averaged 1.84 million and sat at the top of the most-watched list, but the dominance of Lego Masters ended the night in Nine’s favour. Australian Story with Roy Slaven and HG Nelson had 1.17 million -- still doing it for the fans. Ten’s MasterChef Australia managed 1.16 million and House Rules on Seven had 934,000.
