  1. It’s almost like groundhog day when MAFS is running. Nothing moves much, audiences are hooked. Those shares for Nine are incredible- 47% in 16-39s across all platforms and almost 60% of all 16-39 year old catch up viewers.

    1% Club and Idol have done well to hold respectable figures against it but they’re simply dwarfed by MAFS no matter how you look at it. What’s also amazing is Ten and Seven seem to just accept MAFS dominance now and they seem so scared they don’t throw anything new up against it.

    With the relative success of 1% Club and shows like Hard Quiz and The Hundred I am surprised no network has announced a local version of The Floor yet. It won’t crush MAFS but would surely do better than Dog House or whatever lame crap Seven and Nine are airing post 8:30pm.
