Same story as the past 11 nights, with the Winter Games coverage lifting Seven to an overall win. Married At First Sight on Nine with 1.71 million national viewers, and 1.23 million in the metros, was easily the most watched show last night, ahead of My Kitchen Rules with 1.52 million nationally and less than a million in the metros — 988,000 — which is not a good look. The Winter Games averaged 1.12 million from 9pm and this again provided Seven with the win. A further 323,000 people watched on 7mate up to 9pm, so the gross audience last night was a solid 1.446 million.

Ten’s I’m A Celebrity averaged 722,000 viewers and is now meandering to its finish after starting strongly. In Breakfast Today has won metros on Monday and Tuesday

On Foxtel, The Bolt Report got a very rare win in the most watched stakes with 54,000 viewers, sliding past his Sky rival, Paul Murray Live with 51,000. In the regions, Seven News was on top with 554,000 viewers, followed by MKR with 536,000, then Married with 479,000 viewers, fourth was Seven News/TT with 465,000 and Home and Away was fifth with 449,000.
