The Voice was absent from Nine last night, so Big Brother’s average climbed solidly back above the million viewers nationally mark bringing a sigh of relief at Seven. The average of 1.11 million (up from 951,000 on Monday night) rose because the eviction jumped to 1.13 million and the lead up stuff rose back above a million to average 1.08 million.

But Ten’s Masterchef with 1.23 million still won the night for non-news programs. Nine’s A Current Affair had a very weak night -- 977,000 nationally and out of the top 10 nationally (Number 11).

Helped by a solid night for its 6 to 7pm news, it was Seven’s night from a distant Nine and Ten.
