Magda Szubanski hosts Nine's The Weakest Link

The Weakest Link was up 485,000 nationally from the previous week but down nearly 700,000 from the final of Australian Ninja Warrior (average 1.17 million). Sure it had a 9.20pm start, but it should have held more. Nevertheless, it did win the timeslot. 

Ninja’s winner announcement averaged 1.24 million and the final lead-up averaged 1.98 million, Seven’s Farmer Wants a Wife averaged 1.07 million. MasterChef Australia was again squeezed with 782,000 for Ten. The news, Home and Away and Farmer Wants A Wife gave Seven another big win in regional markets.

Nine won the metros in total people and the main channels from Seven and Ten.
