Married at First Sight topped the night with 1.33m viewers ahead of My Kitchen Rules on 1.07m. TEN’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here was in fourth place on 579,000, but up from last Monday’s 534,000.
Travel Guides 673,000 was its best audience this year, at around 100,000 in front of Seven’s launch for The Resident on 576,000, just ahead of Four Corners on 563,000.
