Ok so its not all bad for Masterchef. Seems like with AGT out of the way for a night the aud for Masterchef lifts.
Earlier in the week it was looking as if the Talent show and Dancing with the Stars were going to erode the ratings of ten's juggernaut.
Certainly ten's previous reality hits gave suffered from audience drop-off in the third year but a figure of 1.5million viewers in a Thursday shows there's not too much for ten to worry about yet, its just that Seven's reality skeins are having an unusually good year.
The Good Wife and SVU had their best weeks of the season so far but even then they dropped almost half of the Masterchef aud.
Worse though was channel Nine which can't catch a break! New show (buggered if I know what genre - Eddie McGuire vehicle that's a genre at this point right?) Between the Lines is his second major flop in as many months.
More on this after I take a look at his show for myself next week.
