Helped along by a 4 day week, Seven Sharp delivered its highest average audience since the show began with 450,593 viewers per night.  This was up 4% on the previous week and 11% on the previous year.

Campbell Live enjoyed a 12% rise from the four nights to an average audience of 267,223 viewers per night.  While a 12% gain is an achievement one should be proud of, it was still down 28% on the same period in 2013.

Michelle Obama has picked up another guest appearance, this time on Disney Channel’s Jessie.

Blake Anderson is to guest on the season finale of Parks and Recreation.

That’s Easter done and dusted for another year. Did the TV networks make it seem festive, if that’s the right word? Unlike Christmas, Easter seems to be all but ignored by the programmers these days.

Anyway, if there’s anything you’d like to discuss today, this daily general thread is just for you.

Another interesting looking period drama set against the backdrop of the mission to build the world’s first atomic bomb. MANHATTAN follows the brilliant but flawed scientists and their families as they attempt to co-exist in a world where secrets and lies infiltrate every aspect of their lives.

My super scientific Masterchef rankings:

1st: Kasey and Karena: It will take a lot for me to change these ladies from top of the rankings. Another impressive cooking display, plus, they crack me up so that gets them some bonus points.

2nd: Nikki and Jordan: After rave reviews from their cook book inspired dishes last night, these two are sitting pretty for a finals spot unless a disaster throws them over the cliff tonight. While I don’t think Nikki would handle the stress of a real restaurant kitchen, her and Jordan definitely have an eye and the talent to create delicious food.

3rd: Jaimie and Bec: Last night was anything but a good night in the kitchen for this duo, and coupled with Josh’s obvious dislike of Jaimie, the safe money is on these two heading back to the South Island to visit their kids tonight.
