Kim Duthie interview takes 7PM Project to 923,000

The 7PM Project’s controversial interview with St Kilda sex scandal schoolgirl Kim Duthie took the show to 923,000 viewers for Ten last night.

After airing a tough interview with the panel – in which they were clearly sceptical about her attempts to withdraw her previous allegations – the show aired her post-interview confession that she had just lied to them.

According to preliminary overnight metro ratings from OzTam, the show was ninth for the night.

The inherited audience then helped Masterchef to a strong 1.564m, top show of the night.  

Seven’s best evening performer was Grey’s Anatomy on 936,000.

Nine’s wildlife doco Polar Bear: Spy On The Ice rated 828,000.

In the breakfast slot, Seven’s Sunrise (321,000) took a beating from the increasingly resurgent Today (370,000).
