Monday Ratings | Nothing comes close to MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT


A massive MAFS audience, with a reasonable ABC following, and not much else on TV it seems.

A Current Affair (803,000) pulled massive numbers to start the week, followed by an equally massive Married At First Sight (1,065,000). Under Investigation (521,000) kept about half the audience, then it split along footy code lines:
Footy Classified (TBA,000) MEL/ADL/PER, though note that 100% Footy did not air in SYD/BNE due to the Nine Sydney hacking situation. Nine first in both primary (26.8%) & network (33.8%) shares.

A bumper triple episode of Home and Away (475,000 3-ep average) a distant third in the timeslot. It didn’t even make sense as the episodes weren’t written or filmed to be run back to back, but here we are in non-ratings and all bets are off. A repeat of MOVIE: Bridget Jones’s Diary (182,000) served almost nobody. Seven second in both primary (15.5%) & network (23.6%) shares.

ABC’s public affairs Monday continues to pull a solid audience, landing Aunty in second after 7pm. 7:30 (690,000) and Australian Story (634,000) do great business in the timeslot, though a world away from its commercial competition. Four Corners (441,000) weaker than normal which affected Media Watch (422,000) too. To The Stars: 100 Years of the RAAF (195,000) completed the night. ABC third in both primary (13.9%) & network (18.8%) shares.

The Project (310,000 6:30pm; 455,000 7pm) softer for 10, yet still its best by a long shot. Elizabeth & Phillip: Royals Revealed (262,000) barely drew an audience, and the season finale of Hughesy, We Have A Problem (191,000) almost didn’t pull an audience at all. A repeat of The Graham Norton Show (TBA,000) ensures the network meets its responsibility to advertisers. 10 a shallow fourth in both primary (8.3%) & network (15.6%) shares.


Sunrise (268,000)
The Today Show (217,000)
