Ten's much-hyped format Elementary wheeled in 1.23 million viewers last night, while MasterChef: The Professional saw a ratings boost without rival My Kitchen Rules.
Ten's new American crime drama Elementary premiered to 1.23 million metro viewers and was the second highest-rating program in the Top 20, according to preliminary OzTam figures.
MasterChef: The Professionals (MCP) buoyed its audience to 1.12 million metro viewers, a marked increase compared to last week's sub one million ratings. It was the fifth highest-rating program of the night, and the first time show it aired in the 7.30 timeslot without Seven's My Kitchen Rules (MKR) since it launched last Monday. MKR has been consistently out-rating MCP with figures up to 1.65 million (Wednesday 30th January).
However, it was Nine News which snared the top spot with an audience of 1.61 million metro viewers. Seven News took out third place with 1.14 million metro viewers, followed by Sunday Night with 1.13 million.
Other programs in the Top 20 were the One Day Cricket Games One and Two (Nine), Border Security and The Force (Seven), ABC News, The Graham Norton Show (Ten) and a Modern Family repeat (Ten).
Across the main channels, Nine won the audience share with a total of 29.3%, followed by Seven with 26.5% and Ten with 22.6%. ABC gained 16%, while SBS saw 5.5%.
