Wow, that’s a fantastic result. 10 would be overwhelmed. The figures this season as well have shown that the show has a new light.

Yeah but it was on an hour later. That is to be expected.

Well deserved win to 10 with brilliant ratings for MasterChef finale and HYBPA (despite the 9.25pm start). And it was a consistent ratings winner for the network during its three-month run.
The FTA premiere of movie Deadpool 2 was belted by both MC finale and HYBPA.


Glad to see it doing better than those shows.

True but it’s viewers who don’t watch Madterchef probably tuned in at its 2 advertised times of 8:40, then 9pm but on the night i think it was nearly 9:30.
It’s already a hit and has a high loyal audience, Do 10 need to mislead it’s audience for either show?

Such a great season of MC. Kudos to everyone involved in its reinvention this year.

A lesson in how to freshen an ageing franchise.


Solid figure for the footy considering the Crows are on the bottom of the AFL ladder.


It’s a tricky way to boost Masterchef. I watched it waiting for HYBPA.


Well done to MasterChef. 1.5million is huge for any show on TV today. To think the Winner Announced segment beat the MAFS 2020 finale numbers. Pretty amazing effort for a show in it’s 12th year!. Masterchef also built an audience throughout the episode unlike The Voice.

A big night for 10 with the MCA Finale topping the evening. Shows you don’t need big event sport to have big ratings. Their primetime offerings are strong. Good season all round.


This is an amazing achievement for a show in its 12th year (I hope I have that right).


This is the competition that MC beat in overnights. Will have to wait to see if the consolidated and VPM numbers when added confirm this.


It is just incredible!

Seven shows the Melbourne News here in Adelaide at 4:00 so it’s not local anymore. I watch Hot Seat at 4 instead.

Tipping Point is at 3pm

You know prime time hasn’t gone well when you’re trumpeting the success of your 3pm British game show.

That said, if it’s beating The Chase UK at 3pm, could a local version beat The Chase Australia at 5pm?

Isn’t that what Nine are hoping to do with Tipping Point UK in the long run? UK version at 3pm now and possibly Tipping Point Australia replacing Hot Seat in a year or two from now.

Seven did exactly that with The Chase, remembering how the UK version was on-air for a couple of years before The Chase Australia was launched.


The big test will be how MasterChef performs next season/year. Only then will we know whether the ‘Back to Win’ season really reinvigorated the show from a long-term ratings POV or if it was merely boosted by a combination of factors (namely its all-star nature).


Channel 10 is doing well and winning the night thanks to Masterchef FInale and HYBPA. It’s july and Channel 10 want to be competitive during its primetime slots. My feeling is that Masterchef Australia has improved from last year where they introduced new judges.
