Seven: Home and Away climbed above 700,000 which hasn’t happened a lot lately.
Big Brother then grew nicely with 777,000 and then 807,000 for the eviction after Monday audiences of close to 665,000 for both parts of the episode. It was down week-on-week though after audience of 817,000 and 841,000 last Tuesday. Angela got the most votes for the eviction, but she was only evicted to the Big Brother bunker.
Again the demos and combo of Seven News, Home and Away and Big Brother pushed Seven to win the night all people and in key demos. Seven’s timeslot commercial share 16-39 last night was 47% (it ran later than MasterChef).
Later in the night Criminal Minds was on 281,000.

Nine: The channel again dipped dramatically on Tuesday. The highlight was a win for Nine News along the east coast.
Kath and Kim disappeared quickly from the Tuesday 7.30pm timeslot after last week. Paramedics got the call into service with 447,000 a better return for Nine.
RBT followed with 350,000.

10: Reece must be a real chance to win MasterChef Australia as he has secured a place in the final seven with another immunity win last night. He was first out the blocks on the four-way cook last night and he looks full of confidence and went about creating his dish methodically. The episode was again over 900,000, ranking #3 show for the night behind only Seven and Nine 6pm News. The episode won its timeslot in all demos, even narrowly ahead of Big Brother 16-39.
How To Stay Married then did 425,000 after 414,000 a week ago.

 ABC: Foreign Correspondent was on 412,000 after News and 7.30.
The second episode of Australia’s Ocean Odyssey did 375,000 after launching with 402,000.

SBS: Who Do You Think You Are? featured Denise Scott with 349,000 turning in.
Insight then did 257,000.
