Lego Masters returns with 1.2m metro audience

Nine’s Lego Masters has made a strong return for its second season on Australian television, with an average metro audience of 1.239m viewers making the Hamish Blake fronted contest the most watched entertainment show of Sunday night.

The number was slightly down on last year’s launch episode which rated 1.377m viewers.

Taking into account regional viewers, Lego Masters’ national audience was 1.674m.

Viewers’ continuing interest in the coronavirus crisis saw current affairs programming dominate audience share. Seven News was the most watched program of the night, with an average audience of 1.253m, rising to 1.9m nationally.

Nine News achieved a metro share of 1.1m, rising to 1.5m nationally.

Thanks to the family friendly competition from Nine’s Lego Masters, Ten’s Masterchef faded slightly, although metro viewing remained just the right side of one million. Masterchef averaged 1.01m metro viewers and 1.3m nationally.

Seven’s House Rules continued to struggle, with just 630,000 metro viewers. It was beaten into fourth place in its timeslot by the ABC’s Spicks and Specks special which rated 691,000 metro viewers.

Nine also won the battle for primary channel share, with 24.9% of the free to air audience, well ahead of Seven’s 16.1% and Ten’s 15.6%. The ABC was on 12.3%
