A Roy Morgan Single Source survey has found that Australians spend over two billion dollars a week on groceries. Meanwhile, viewers of the average Sunday night episode of Seven’s "My Kitchen Rules" together spend an average $236 million a week on groceries – around three times more than viewers of either Nine’s "Australia’s Got Talent" ($81 million) or Ten’s "I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here" ($71 million), which also aired on Sunday nights in early 2016. Seven’s mid-year season of "House Rules" reached $167 million worth of the week’s grocery expenditure on an average Sunday night, ahead of "The Voice" ($143 million) and "MasterChef" ($120 million). Reconfiguring viewership as an audience dollar value in the grocery market delivers the strongest boost to "MasterChef". Its typical pool of Sunday night viewers is not only popular among grocery buyers, but they spend $18 more a week than the average Australian. The show’s $120 million worth of "grocery market reach" is 14% bigger than its share of the population.
