Celebrity Masterchef picks up

Ten’s Celebrity Masterchef saw a slight improvement on Wednesday night, with an audience approaching 1.2m.  

That compared to just under 1.1m last week and 1.4m for its debut. This mostly held through for Ten’s NCIS Los Angeles which rated 1.1m.

But Ten’s new hospital series Three Rivers bombed in the 9.30pm slot, rating less than 500,000 viewers.

Meanwhile Nine’s Money for Jam saw a dramatic drop in audience after its two episode break to make room for the Hey Hey Reunions. According to preliminary data from OzTam, last night’s episode rated just 858,000, compared to 1.1m before it took its break and around 2.2m for the Hey Hey specials over the last two Wednesdays.

Seven narrowly won the night.
