The Voice has taken out the top spot in all key demographics for the second night in a row, despite dropping off by 120,000 viewers overnight, drawing in an audience of 881,000.

Ten's MasterChef managed to claw back close to 100,000 viewers last night, after suffering its lowest audience to date on Sunday night, drawing in 820,000 viewers.

Ten's growth in viewers continued into the evening slot, as its popular celebrity quiz show Have You Been Paying Attention? returned for 2018.

The show, hosted by Tom Gleisner, premiered to an audience of 808,000 and featured regular contestants and radio hosts, Nova 100's Sam Pang and 2DayFM's Ed Kavalee.

Seven's House Rules slipped slightly in the ratings last night but remained consistent with the season average, drawing an audience of 673,000 viewers.

House Rules and MasterChef will go head-to-head this evening, while Nine will air part one of its two part series Eat Well for Less, a lifestyle show that follows families and where they can save money by eating well for less.
