Nine’s Married, Travel Guides win Monday slots.

Ratings: Monday was the first night of the survey year without Winter Olympics.

Monday was the first night of the survey year without Winter Olympics and while it proved to be a close match between Nine and Seven, that’s largely due to Seven’s stronger multichannels.

On the all-important primary channel, Nine was the clear leader, winning from 7pm onwards.

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.

Seven News, ACA and The Chase all won their slots.

  1. Love it or loathe it, MAFS continues to dominate. Very soft figures for The Resident on Seven but good numbers watching Travel Guides which is on at the same time. This is one of my favourite programs although I find the woman doing the narration rather annoying. Loved Australian Story last night. If you didn’t see it then catch it on iview. Extremely emotional and inspirational.

    1. Denise Scott is the woman narrating Travel Guides. Don’t find her annoying but I think she sounds a lot like the mum and daughter reviewers from the Fren family.
      Love this show – especially the Frens and the “more cultured” Kevin and Janetta – what a contrast between the two!

      1. Agree, the contrast between the Frens and Kevin & Janetta is great watching. It’s also refreshing to watch a reality show where people aren’t being nasty to each other.

    1. Thought the same thing – it would have been pretty noticeable.
      Vicki is a gem – she was having so much fun at the pirate party. Hope she stays for a while longer.

  2. CBS certainly has a lot of work to do to make 10 a channel competitive and with anything worth watching. I don’t think Paradise will make much of a dent with such formidable competition.

    1. I think Reject Island … oh, I mean Bachelor in Paradise will do decently. It won’t hit the million but it will hit a reasonable 700k and go pretty well in the Demos and online.

  3. I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here generally picks up between 60 and 70 thousand viewers on timeshifted for a Monday, so will be interesting to see if that increase of 45,000 comes out of that. That is based on Jan 29th, Feb 05th and Feb 12th figures as last weeks Feb 19th ones aren’t out as I type this up, so they may be more if people watched the Winter Olympics live instead compared to those weeks.
