We’re not entirely sure what happened to MKR last night, but it scored some of its best numbers of the 2019 series, rising to 861,000 according to OzTAM metro numbers.
On Sunday, MKR did 751,000 and 764,000 on Monday, so Pete and Manu have managed to muster an extra 100,000 viewers in the past 24 hours.
Still, it wasn’t enough to dent the MAFS juggernaut, that posted 1.26 million and was the most watched show of Tuesday.
In the battle of the breakfast shows, Sunrise continued to flare its fangs, posting 283,000 to Today’s neat 200,000.
Nine won the night with 33.3 per cent audience share. Seven took home 29.3 per cent, the ABC held on for third spot and 16.1 per cent, 10 had 14.4 per cent and SBS pulled 6.9 per cent.
Other standouts for Seven included its 6pm news (918,000), Home And Away (605,000), The Good Doctor (543,000) and The Chase (4814,000).
Over at Nine, its doers were: 6pm news (905,000), ACA (765,000), Travel Guides (745,000) and Hot Seat (477,000).
10’s best was The Project (457,000) and a disappointing Ambulance Australia (379,000) that can’t seem regain its 2018 form in the face of MAFS and MKR.
The ABC’s night ran thus: 7pm news (712,000), 7.30 (610,000), Foreign Correspondent (468,000) and Catalyst (334,000).
SBS’s best was Insights, that pulled 214,000.
