MAFS dominates Easter non-ratings

Ratings: Controversy equals ratings as Nine claims non-ratings week.

Easter non-ratings came early this year, with Married at First Sight continuing unabated.

Its success comes at a time when a petition criticising the show for “gaslighting and emotional manipulation” of participant Melissa has attracted over 10,000 signatures. ACMA has also confirmed receiving formal complaints linked to this season.

But with controversy comes eyeballs as all 4 episodes drew over a million metro viewers last week.

  1. I worry that younger people who watch this think this is how to behave in relationships. MAFS is really concerning content wise. This show gets bad publicity and criticism every year but nothing changes.
