Viewers’ fascination with romance continued last night as Married at First Sight drew its best figures of the season.
The show drew 1.08m viewers, dominating its timeslot, topping the demos and wrapping as the top entertainment show of the night. It thumped 800 Words which fell again to 618,000, trapped by both a soft lead-in and heavy competition.
Only Seven News stopped Nine’s wins from 6pm with ACA also over the magic million and The Block winning its timeslot.
Australian Survivor delivered another delicious Tribal Council with the exit of self-appointed ‘puppeteer’ Andrew to the tune of 690,000, second in its slot. That was up on Monday’s outing but lower than a week ago.
Julia Morris in Who Do You Think You Are? pulled in a cool 400,000 for SBS which will likely top its week.
Nine network won Tuesday with 32.0% then Seven 26.3%, TEN 19.3%, ABC 15.2% and SBS 7.2%.
