Nine won Sunday night after Married at First Sight hit a season high at 1.19m viewers, eclipsing My Kitchen Rules on 1.02m.
But the real news was The Biggest Loser: Transformed at just 305,000 viewers. TEN’s failed reality show is sending the schedule into a tailspin, with Bull also losing ground on last week, and the network waking up to a hideous Sunday share.
The other big news of the night was the win by ABC’s Vera again winning its slot with 851,000 viewers, topping Sunday Night (727,000) and 60 Minutes (673,000) -and proving yet again that viewers will turn up for a good drama in the traditional Sunday slot. Nine is suffering a big drop from MAFS to its flagship current affairs show.
Seven News won its slot with 1.06m viewers.
