Solid debut for Gallipoli, but Seven takes the win

Network Seven rode the My Kitchen Rules train to a dominant win last night, but Nine had another win with a mini-series.

The cooking reality format continues to dominate screens in the early part of the year, and last night proved no different with the format bringing in 1.65 million viewers, according to the overnight metro figures from OzTAM.

Meanwhile, Nine built its audience throughout the night, beginning with The Block, which brought in 919,000.

But the big talking point from last night was the performance of new mini-series Gallipoli, which managed to attract 1.1 million for the debut, although its audience sagged towards the backend of the presentation to 804,000.

Network Ten's presentation of I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here brought in 651,000 for the main show, but fewer stuck around to see the celebrity couple crash the show, with 614,000 tuning in to see the intruders enter. However, Ten later confirmed this became 641,000.

It all added up to a 32.3% share for Seven, while Nine managed to bring in 28.7% of the audience. The ABC rode a current affairs line-up to an 18.9% share, which beat out Ten's 16.1% effort.

Tonight all three major reality formats will be up against each other at 7.30pm once again, while Seven will be debuting US drama How to Get Away With Murder after My Kitchen Rules.
