The Good Doctor (1.27 million, down from 1.44 million a week ago) was again the difference between Seven and Nine. Married grabbed 1.75 million national viewers and My Kitchen Rules 1.52 million.  Seven also won the demos, with thanks to The Good Doctor again.

For Ten there was a worrying sign from last night’s I’m A Celebrity. The elimination, usually the most watched, had less viewers (774,000) than the lead up (802,000). Just enough perhaps to show the audience doesn’t really care?

In regional markets Seven News was on top with 573,000, followed by My Kitchen Rules with 513,000, then Seven News/Today Tonight with 490,000, then Married with 483,000 and Home and Away was fifth with 430,000.
