To the great relief of its competitor broadcasters, MAFS has thrown its last wine and final tantrum with last night’s finale pulling a staggering 1.968 million viewers according to overnight OzTAM metro numbers.
That left Seven and 10 licking their wounds – MKR mustering 710,000 and Dancing With The Stars with just 393,000.
Interestingly, both shows were beat by an impressive Australian Story that did 715,000 for the ABC.
On the back of MAFS’ monster numbers, Nine easily won the night with 40.1 per cent audience share. Seven took home 25.4 per cent, the ABC had 16.2 per cent, 10 did 13.4 per cent and SBS had a night to forget with just 4.9 per cent.
If Seven could get any solace from yesterday’s numbers, Sunrise (309,000) walloped Today (208,000).
In another interesting twist, ACA (1.019 million) beat Nine’s 6pm news (1.014 million). Bad Mothers had a good night for Nine with 605,000 and Hot Seat did 543,000.
Seven’s best was its 6pm news with an impressive 1.1 million. Home And Away did 679,000 and The Chase pulled 638,000.
Dancing aside, 10’s other standouts were The Project with 496,000 and 10 News First with 409,000.
ABC’s current affair-centric Monday went thus: 7pm news (789,000), Australian Story (715,000), 7.30 (663,000), Media Watch (587,000), Four Corners (577,000) and Q&A (328,000).
Over at SBS, its best was Queen Victoria And Her Nine Children that pulled 150,000 and was the 50th most watched show of the night.
