Nine TV Ratings

Nine was the top primary channel with a share of 18.4% last night thanks to Celebrity Apprentice followed by The Weakest Link.

On Celebrity Apprentice 594,000 tuned in as it was men v women as the newly minted teams had to host “the ultimate sleepover,” with an exit poll completed by both children and their parents the next morning to decide the winning team.

The men won the challenge after a blown budget from the women made a bed but no breakfast. Ultimately it was Camila Franks who was fired, after being blamed for spending too much money on bedding and miscommunicating the price. 657,000 viewers watched the boardroom elimination

The Weakest Link then followed with 284,000 tuning in for the reboot’s third episode. This was down on last week which had 300,000, following a launch audience of 423,000 three weeks ago. This is the second week in a row that the show has missed out on the top 20 shows.

Nine then aired repeats of Kath and Kim with 153,000 and 128,000 viewers apiece.

Seven TV Ratings

Seven was the top network last night after earning a 27.3% share, with 7mate being equal #1 multichannel with 3.9%.

Home and Away was the top non-news program last night with 607,000 viewers and was followed by Big Brother with 569,000.

On Big Brother, the housemates endured a five-hour car trip from hell, while heads of house SJ and Danny were living large in the executive suite.

SJ and Danny were given their final advantage as Big Brother’s second-in-command – the opportunity to nominate one person for eviction.

In the most strategic challenge they’ve ever faced, Tilly won for a  record extending sixth time and nominated Adriana and Christina after Danny’s promise to take out one of his own for getting rid of Mary.

SJ convinced Danny that Charlotte was a threat and she became the third and final housemate to face eviction.

In the eviction ceremony, a conflicted Danny stuck with SJ and his alliance, sending Charlotte home and leaving Marley hung out to dry once more.

“I was really relying on the people that said they had my back to really have my back,” said Charlotte. “I played a very open game, which was probably to my detriment, but I am feeling pretty betrayed by Ari. I have good faith that Tilly, Marley and Sid will give Ari what is deserved.”

The Good Doctor followed with 311,000 viewers which down on last weeks 343,000.

10 TV Ratings

The Project had 327,000 (6:30pm) and 527,000 (7pm) viewers last night as the show covered the AFP’s and FBI’s huge international sting operation, adult ADHD, plus Tim Rogers joined the show.

MasterChef had 571,000 viewers as Amir tried his best to stay up-beet about his veggie dish, but his burnt beetroot was the catalyst for his elimination.

Road trip week continued as the contestants headed inland to Dairy Flat Farm in Daylesford, owned by Alla Wolf-Tasker.

Sabina, Minoli, Linda and Amir were facing elimination and Melissa explained that the challenge was to cook a vegetarian dish using ingredients picked straight from Alla’s garden.

Amir was happy with the concept of his dish but knew it would all come down to the cook on the beetroot. The judges liked the flavours of the dish, but the beetroot was burnt on the edges and it was this mistake that saw Amir the thirteenth contestant eliminated from MasterChef Australia.

How to Stay Married was up next with 255,000 watching as Em (Lisa McCune) had a “special” dream about cricket legend, Adam Gilchrist that inspires her to become more experimental in the bedroom.

10Bold was the equal #1 multichannel thanks to NCIS and Blue Bloods.

ABC TV Ratings

Anh’s Brush with Fame had 542,000 viewers as Anh Do tried to capture the intellect and compassion of Michael Kirby.

This was followed by a double episode of Love on the Spectrum with an average audience of 485,000.

SBS TV Ratings

The re-runs are over as Who Do You Think You Are? aired its first new episode of 2021. In the episode Celia Pacquola found out her three times Scottish great grandfather, John Rae, was Sydney’s first Town Clerk, and his talent as a landscape painter was of historic significance. The episode had 313,000 viewers.

This was then followed by Insight with 193,000 and then Dateline with 98,000 viewers.
