Heavy promotion for My Kitchen Rules during the Commonwealth Games is paying off for Seven, last night pulling 1.25m viewers.
It was the top ranking show of the night ahead of The Voice on 930,000 viewers and Bachelor in Paradise on 676,000. Bachelor topped the 16-39 demo and MKR led in 18-49 and 25-54. Across all 3 demos The Voice was third which could become a problem if it is exacerbated, especially given the Blind Auditions are generally the stronger part of the series.
That three-way tussle left ABC shows sitting just under the 600,000 mark while The Good Doctor easily won the 9pm slot for Seven. SBS also carved out a good share for a Monday, with thanks to an Elizabeth doco.
Seven News, ACA and The Chase won their slots.
Seven network won Monday with 33.6% then Nine 25.5%, ABC 17.3%, TEN 16.3% and SBS 7.3%.
