Married at First Sight has beaten My Kitchen Rules for the second night in a row.
But while they were split on Sunday with just 1,000 viewers, the gap widened somewhat last night with MAFS at 1.16m viewers and MKR at 1.01m. Nine’s show also led in the demos and for the first time won the national battle.
That left I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here in third place with 621,000 viewers, down on last Monday’s 712,000 viewers. Two new celebs entered the jungle in the form of Brits Paul Burrell & Vicky Pattinson. Meanwhile, it may take viewers some time to notice SVU has switched nights, languishing on 259,000.
Part 2 of Nine’s Chopper drama fell from 903,000 to 696,000 but will lift presumably in Timeshifted.
ABC was caught in the reality crossfire with several shows hovering around the 500,000 mark.
Rolling coverage of the Olympics ensured Seven network still won Monday with 38.5% then Nine 27.2%, TEN 15.0%, ABC 14.3% and SBS 5.0%.
