After a few days of breathless lead-up stories about the nasty events on the show, Married At First Sight had another night-topping effort with 1.6 million viewers. That’s up 4000 on the previous Sunday night. 

60 Minutes even got a lift from having MAFS as the lead-in; it recorded 1.25 million viewers. End of night. Turn out the lights please, it’s all over for another week.

Seven’s MKR made the top 10 nationally, but with just 751,000. The ABC was also in there with the end of the 7pm News (1.02 million) and then Grand Designs (761,000). Ten was weak with Dancing With The Stars (605,000). Stateless on the ABC debuted to a reasonable 652,000.
