Ghost of Masterchef lifts Ten

The Masterchef uplift lingered for Ten on Monday night with the appearance by winner Adam Liaw and finalist Callum Hann taking The 7PM Project to 1.2m and Undercover Boss, which was previewed after Sunday night’s final, pulling in 1.4m viewers.  

Meanwhile, according to preliminary overnight metro ratings from OzTam, Nine’s new comedy hope Hot In Cleveland made a solid debut pulling in nearly 1.3m viewers.

Nine won the night, just ahead of Seven, which had a strong early evening. Ten was third.

It was also an unusually close race in the morning slot, with Seven’s Sunrise (346,000) only just ahead of Nine’s Today (335,000). Today won the biggest two markets of Sydney and Melbourne, but Sunrise clawed enough back in Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth to stay just in front.
