Holey Moley died on air on Seven last night. Just 758,000 national viewers for the final, against a debut of 1.51 million. That’s a loss of half the launch audience. There’s a "celebrity" version next Sunday night -- Australia can hardly wait.

But in the US it's a very different fate with the Disney-owned ABC network giving the American version a two-series renewal. ABC also increased the run for the second season to 13 episodes, up from 10 in season one. Americans must be more credulous.

Nine’s Married At First Sight -- 1.25 million and the most watched non-news program. Last year's 2020 series started with 1.49 million. Nine’s happy, but the writing is on the wall for MAFS. Still it meant Nine won the night bigly and has already won the week with three more eps of MAFS to send viewers off to the streamers for some intelligent TV with real actors.
