Last night, Seven’s country-lovin’ dating show Farmer Wants a Wife launched to 820,000 viewers, as per OzTAM’s metro data.
For anyone unfamiliar with the rural thrills and spills of the show, it sees five farmers on their quest for love.
Each of the farmers invites five women back to their ranches (they go and live on the farm) as the audience watches sparks fly over dramatic shots of the rugged Australian countryside and the melodic sounds of sheep baaing.
It was last night’s top performing entertainment.
Top overall was Seven News, which had 1,187,000 viewers, followed by Nine News Sunday with 1,106,000.
After Farmer Wants a Wife was Australian Ninja Warrior, climbing, swinging and hurdling its way into the second most watched entertainment slot. After middling ratings last week, Sunday night’s viewership was solid at 724,000.
