The numbers to the left of the episode titles corresponds to that particular show’s position for the week.
As we can see, Wednesday’s edition of MasterChef Australia and Australia’s Got Talent are down quite severely from last week (MasterChef down 173,000; the weeks largest week on week drop; Australia’s Got Talent down 119,000) and the only episodes that gained an audience was Tuesday’s Australia’s Got Talent which rose by 44,000 viewers and the week’s biggest week on week gainer, MasterChef Australia- Sunday which rose by 60,000 viewers.
Dancing with the Stars shed 162,000 viewers from last week with The Amazing Race: Australia dropping a sizeable 114,000 viewers.
MasterChef was down across the week with Thursday’s episode the least affected; only 44,000 off on last week. 57,000 fled Monday’s episode while the MasterClass episode didn’t impress 67,000 enough to return this week. Tuesday’s episode was also down with 79,000 viewers deciding to give it a miss.
The State of Origin is on again this week; will the drop be larger? Will Dancing with the Stars fall further, and what is in store for The Amazing Race Australia; will it ‘J Curve’ its butt to a higher number? And how high can Australia’s Got Talent go?
All important question; an all important week of reality ahead!
