Yes, MAFS won the night for Nine with 1.44 million viewers nationally. Nine boasted about that, but it was the ABC that again did well, pushing Ten back to fourth spot for the second night in a row (as it has been doing most Sundays and Mondays in the past six weeks).

The ABC ran second from 7pm onwards behind Nine. After 9.15pm when MAFS ended, the ABC led the night.

Today had an average start to the week — 300,000 national and 194,000 metro. Sunrise had 446,000 national and 260,000 metro viewers.
