Wednesday Ratings | HARD QUIZ remains unbeaten as MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT goes large


Gold Logie winner Tom Gleeson continues to host the most watched quiz show in Australia as MAFS can’t be touched.

Nine’s Wednesday continues unchallenged, with A Current Affair (723,000) staying up and Married At First Sight (1,017,000) staying over one million. Huge. Amazing Grace (429,000) up on the last two weeks by only slightly, though still less than half the lead-in. New Amsterdam (81,000) completes the night. Nine first by a long way in both primary (25.2%) & network (33.8%) shares.

Seven’s Wednesday not doing them any favours, even with Home and Away (625,000) delivering it’s best of the week. A double ep of Border Security (229,000; 336,000) isn’t competitive at 7:30pm. Depending on your state, these shows appeared in different orders but still aired in all markets: Ambulance: Code Red (216,000), a repeat of Born To Kill (137,000), and The Front Bar (240,000). Seven very second in both primary (16.5%) & network (23.8%) shares.

ABC’s Wednesday almost their strongest day of the week. 7:30 (625,000) continues to be up week on week, and Hard Quiz (640,000) lands as the ABC’s best – testament to its popularity. The Weekly With Charlie Pickering (510,000) keeps most of that audience, and then builds slightly for Fisk (515,000). The Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2021: Gala part 1 (270,000) rounds out the evening. ABC third in both primary (14.7%) & network (19.6%) shares.

10’s Wednesday The Project (255,000 6:30pm; 388,000 7pm)
significantly down on earlier in the week, and The Cube Australia (312,000) slides slightly…it’s doing nothing to help. A double repeat ep of Bull (166,000; 148,000)
fills slots into the late evening. 10 a very distant fourth in both primary (8.5%) & network (15.2%) shares.


Sunrise (242,000)
The Today Show (227,000)
ABC Breakfast (189,000 [107,000 ABC; 82,000 ABC News])
