Tracey may have finally kicked Dean to the kerb but the real story from Sunday night was the absolutely dismal performance by TEN.
TEN was hemmorhaging viewers in the emergency room, unable to top the 300,000 mark all night. It needed the defibrillator at 7:30pm when All Star Family Feud went into cardiac arrest at just 165,000 viewers.
It was blown out of the water by Married at First Sight at 1.45m viewers, followed by MKR‘s 1.06m and Grand Designs on 613,000.
At 8:40pm 60 Minutes won the slot with 775,000 over Sunday Night and Howard’s Way. NCIS improved for TEN but the damage had been done.
There was also no escaping The Sunday Project at a 2018 low of just 250,000 / 197,000 viewers. TEN’s primary channel was locked in a battle with SBS –Bachelor in Paradise can’t come soon enough. Overall it finished the night with an eponymous 10% share. Ouch.

Married at First Sight was #1 for Nine with 1.45m then Nine News (1.01m), 60 Minutes (775,000) and Weinstein: The Inside Story (354,000).
