TV ratings married at first sight

MAFS (1.58 million) jumped more than 230,000 on a week ago, dragging Doctor Doctor’s national audience up to 834,000 from the returning 807,000.

End result is it’s Nine’s night once again. But not for Seven’s MKR (662,000 nationally), beaten again by the ABC’s 7.30 (851,000), Hard Quiz (855,000) and Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell (806,000) and also Ten’s Australian Survivor All Stars (729,000).

In other words that’s another fourth slot for Seven in the heart of prime time. And that was the night, and probably the week too.
