Nine: A Current Affair started the week on 904,000 and then did 864,000 on Tuesday.
The first elimination came in episode three of Lego Masters and it was goodbye to Annie and Runa in front of 1,035,000. This comes after audiences of 1,239,000 and 1,049,000 earlier this week. “Go hard or go home” was the warning to contestants in an elimination challenge where they had to build their ultimate hero saving the day. The team of Annie and Runa, an unlikely combo of a scientist and a psychic, built a scene from The Little Mermaid, but it didn’t impress Brickman ahead of the other builds and they were sent home.
