TV’s story’s not so much about MAFS‘ incredible dominance but who it’s leaving in its formidable wake.
Last night, Nine’s raunchy love-in soared to a spectacular 1.66 million viewers according to overnight OzTAM metro numbers and skewered the competitors.
It doubled MKR’s numbers of 751,000 and made things incredibly difficult for 10’s debut of Chris & Julia’s Sunday Night Takeaway that pulled just 383,000.
As was to be expected, Nine enjoyed a massive audience share of 39.5 per cent last night. Seven had 26.6 per cent, the ABC had 16.3 per cent, 10 had 12.1 per cent and SBS pulled 5.5 per cent.
MAFS also gave Nine’s 6pm news a halo affect, it having a surprise win over Seven’s version, 965,000 to 892,000, respectively.
Nine’s Confessions of a Serial Killer with Piers Morgan drew 376,000 and Seven’s Undercurrent 343,000.
10’s other notables were Hughesy We Have a Problem (327,000), The Sunday Project (302,000), 10 News First (262,000) and Bondi Rescue (151,000).
ABC’s 7pm news had 661,000, The Cry was 522,000 and Mrs. Wilson pulled 359,000.
While SBS’s best was Secrets of the Pyramids with 154,000.
