After starting its week on 701,000, Home And Away dipped only slightly to 683,000.
The most shocking thing about The Super Switch turned out to be how few people wanted to watch the launch episode. The show did just 308,000 – in the timeslot last week House Rules was on 611,000.
That small audience didn’t do Andrew Denton: Interview any favours as a great guest like Michael Caine attracted 459,000, down from 520,000 last week.
A Current Affair had a second successive night over 800,000 with 837,000.
It was a tough night on The Voice with many more contestants dropping out in the second of The Knockout episodes. It seemed particularly harsh on some of the former contestants who had to suffer an early elimination for a second time. The episode was over 1m after 976,000 on Tuesday last week.
With just a handful of episodes left, The Big Bang Theory was on 638,000 after 573,000 last week.
Tessa managed to win a second immunity pin on MasterChef last night. The episode was on 655,000 and again performed well in the demos.
The Project featured domestic violence campaigner Rosie Batty, comedian Diana Nguyen and eliminated MasterChef contestant Walleed Rasheed. After 7pm the episode was over 500,000 for a second successive night.
Later in the evening Mr Black was on 319,000, just up on last week’s 309,000.
The Recording Studio did 265,000 followed by David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef on 214,000.
Who Do You Think You Are? jumped significantly week-on-week with Kerri-Anne Kennerley taking the audience from 308,000 a week ago to 393,000 last night.
Insight then did 280,000 followed by Dateline on 153,000.
