Monday Ratings | MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT still massive; FOUR CORNERS delivers more horror


In fact, it was horror on most channels last night.

Nine’s Monday started big with A Current Affair (804,000) updating the flood disaster, and then Married At First Sight (1,068,000) updated us all on the relationship drama with their couples. Liz Hayes’ Under Investigation (558,000) holds steady however dropped half its lead-in. The night then split depending on your sporting code: 100% Footy (72,000) (SYD/BNE) or Footy Classified (152,000) (MEL/ADL/PER) to round out the night. Nine another big win in both primary (25.4%) & network (32%) shares.

Seven’s Monday started as good as it would get. Home and Away (581,000) off the pace at 7pm, and Inside Chernobyl (567,000) didn’t help though it was better than last week (Ultimate Tag Australia (60,000) slowly vanishing on 7flix). US dramas 9-1-1 (277,000) and The Rookie (174,000) complete the night. Seven second in both primary (18.1%) & network (25.5%) shares.

ABC’s Monday night of public affairs pulled some big ones as the Government continues to be pressured over the off-colour performance of Ministers and their staff. 7:30 (682,000) and Australian Story (642,000) strong but a distant second. Four Corners (708,000) delivers more information on the Higgins drama, continuing to add colour to the horror. Media Watch (645,000) stays big however nobody was really interested in The Hunt for Gaddafi’s Billions (187,000) by comparison. ABC third again in both primary (14.5%) & network (18.9%) shares.

Ten’s Monday should have been so much bigger. The Project (364,000 6:30pm; 509,000 7pm) sort of benefitted from the exclusive information they added to the growing issues around the Government but didn’t really. The Amazing Race Australia (532,000) up a little on last week however it’s finals week so things should be much more on the up and up. Hughesy, We Have A Problem (199,000) is still a problem, and Becky Lucas: Live At Enmore Cafe (96,000) though great only drew fans. 10 a very distant fourth in both primary (9.8%) & network (16.4%) shares.


Sunrise (289,000)
The Today Show (250,000)
ABC Breakfast (216,000 [126,000 ABC; 90,000 ABC News])
