Married at First Sight has smashed Seven’s debut for Australian Spartan, almost doubling it in size.
MAFS pulled out a whopping 1.54m viewers -its biggest audience ever- over Australian Spartan‘s debut of 816,000. It was a convincing win over a show some were describing as a “clone” on social media.
Married won the slot in all 5 cities, and topped the demos.
I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here pulled 707,000 for the elimination of David Oldfield and 607,000 for the bulk of the show -both numbers up on last Sunday.
Meanwhile ABC’s Riot telemovie failed to pull a crowd at just 207,000 viewers. That’s despite trending at #1 on Twitter with rave reviews.
The Winter Olympics closed with 528,000 for the Closing Ceremony and 580,000 for its earlier Countdown.
