Nine: Nine managed to win the night in network share. It’s primary share climbed from 16.8% to 25.8% with its collection of multichannels adding 9.0% to its share.
A Current Affair was on the right side of 700,000 again.

Seven: The news and Home and Away combo has secured another all people Thursday win. The soapie was on 562,000 across three episodes.
Seven’s movie The Other Woman then did 348,000.
10: The words to the Katy Perry tune Hot N Cold quoted above could easily be about TV ratings. The US singer who visited Australia earlier this year has been helping 10 for a long time via her theme song used on MasterChef for 12 years. She took her involvement to a new level last night, becoming the best guest judge ever on the show. She boogied her way around the MasterChef kitchen during the cook then even had more fun during the five taste tests. She ultimately helped decide that Poh should get immunity on Sunday night. That’s a wild ride for Poh this week from bottom three on Tuesday to #1 on Thursday. The Thursday episode did 942,000 and again pushed 10 the be #1 channel and #1 network under 50 and in key demos. 10 has also programmed an encore screening of the episode tonight which is worth catching up with.
A MasterChef Masterclass followed, sadly without Katy Perry, with 537,000 watching.
