After UK broadcasters saw their ratings tank when they interrupted programming to air wall-to-wall coverage commemorating Prince Philip after his death on Friday, the ABC aired an official commemoration to the Duke of Edinburgh.

Over the weekend, the network received complaints when they interrupted Vera to broadcast news of the Duke’s death. Last night’s show – originally broadcasting by the BBC – HRH The Duke of Edinburgh 1921-2021 pulled a relatively low 323,000 viewership according to OzTAM’s metro data.

MAFS topped last night’s TV ratings with the final vow ceremony as Georgia and Liam parted ways dramatically but Rebecca and Jake, and Patrick and Belinda decided to stay in their couples for the foreseeable future. Awww.

The episode netted 1,032,000 viewers for Nine.

Next was the news as Seven News scored 998,000 viewers and Nine News nabbed 959,000.

A Current Affair had 740,000 viewers while ABC News had 688,000 and 7.30 had 627,000.

For Seven, Home and Away had 605,000 viewers while Dancing With The Stars: All Stars had 588,000. Schapelle Corby was sent home in a controversial elimination as judge Todd McKenney voted to keep her in the competition.

Seven also had The Chase with 519,000 viewers and The Good Doctor at 305,000.

The ABC had Anh’s Brush With Fame where Anh interviewed former Bond Girl Jane Seymour to 549,000 viewers while Old People’s Home For 4 Year Olds had 546,000.

Nine’s programming included Hot Seat with 464,000 viewers and Botched: Most Shocking Patients had 398,000.

Finally for 10, The Project had 436,000 viewers and 10 News First had 358,000.
