Ratings: MKR tops Tuesday as I’m a Celebrity beats Big Bang

Seven’s My Kitchen Rules dominated Tuesday TV viewing with 1,533,000 metro viewers to be the night’s number one program.

Also at 7.30, Ten’s I’m A Celebrity also continued its good run with 828,000 tuning in despite dropping from Monday’s record audience. That placed it ahead of a new episode of The Big Bang Theory on Nine with 798,000 and 643,000 for the repeat that followed.

In network shares, Seven had 31.2%, Nine 25.1%, Ten 20.1%, ABC 16.7% and SBS 6.8%.

Also on Seven, Seven News was next best for the network with 1,061,000 and 977,000 with Home and Away’s second episode for the year dropping to 858,000. Later, Bones had 605,000 and 421,000 with the afternoon’s The Chase Australia on 623,000 and 419,000.

Nine News was again the number one bulletin with 1,093,000 and 1,079,000 with A Current Affair number one at 7pm as well on 928,000. Later, however, Grease Live failed to generate the same interest in Australia as its US broadcast with a lowly 452,000 tuning in across its marathon telecast.

Over on Ten, NCIS was back with 678,000 while NCIS Los Angeles that followed had 414,000 and 233,000. Earlier, The Project grabbed 640,000 and 455,000, Ten Eyewitness News won its timeslot with 573,000 and Family Feud had 529,000.

ABC News did well with 794,000 while Catalyst’s latest season got off to a good start with 732,000. 7.30, however, slipped to 651,000 while Countdown to Life could only manage 477,000. A repeat of Countdown: Do Yourself a Favour had 444,000.

SBS’s top show was Secrets of the Manor Houses on 312,000 while Is Sugar the New Fat? had 225,000.
