Nine: The series final of Lego Masters did big business for Nine last night and secured a Monday victory, albeit with a smaller share than it managed to build on Sunday. Alex and Jackson brandished the Lego Masters (Lego) cup at the end of the episode as they celebrated in front of the other teams and a pre-COVID studio audience. The final episode featured a big build for a big cheque. The final night audiences of 1.462m for the announcement and 1.219m indicate the show pulled a similar audience to the final of season one – 1.481m and 1.253m.
