Continuing what’s already been a successful season seven for Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention?, the show brought in 750,000 metro viewers last night, hitting it’s highest ratings since the premiere episode when 787,000 tuned in.

It also topped all three key advertising demographics, becoming the most-watched by 16-39s, 18-49s and 25-54s.

The current affairs comedy panel, produced for Ten by Working Dog Productions, gained 30,000 viewers on last week’s 718,000, and drew 1.033m in national viewers.

The show also took second place with viewers in the 18-49 and 25-54 demographics, while Ten’s Masterchef held the second spot with 16-39s.
