Married At First Sight drew in 1.92 million viewers — which means Nine won again. Today pulled in 275,000 nationally, 183,000 in the metros; Sunrise 470,000 nationally, 283,000 in the metros. My Kitchen Rules had an audience of 1.26 million nationally, a bit better than in the past couple of weeks, but still well behind MAFS .

Ten’s Dancing With The Stars — the elimination — pulled in 715,000. That still didn’t change Ten’s 4th spot behind the ABC, Seven and Nine. Q&A drew 575,000 nationally.

In the regions, Seven’s 6pm News with 545,000, Seven News/Today Tonight with 541,000, MAFS with 513,000, MKR with 437,000 and Home and Away with 418,000. Viewing levels for some programs, especially in the regions seemed higher than previous Mondays — the first cool Monday might of the year in NSW perhaps?
