10: MasterChef Australia delivered again last night as the primary channel and the network were #1 for a second consecutive night. Gordon Ramsay was handling service for 120 guests that the 24 Back to Win contestants had to serve. Seeing the British chef in full flight is quite spectacular, although he was relatively well-behaved compared to his US TV theatrics. For the second night Poh managed to dodge a bullet as the show works its way towards eliminating the first contestant next week. The franchise had its best opening in five years on Monday, and last night was the best second episode number since 2011 with 1,095,000. The year-on-year episode two number was up 62%.
The Project is rising as fans settle in for a night on 10 with 720,000 watching after 7pm. That was the biggest Project audience since June 2017. The episode outrated ACA in Melbourne.
NCIS got a bump too with 507,000 cap city viewers its best since October last year.
ABC: After News, 7.30 and Foreign Correspondent all found a home in the top 20, Catalyst was on 389,000 at 8.30pm.
