TV ratings married at first sight

Married at First Sight lifted its audience on its second night from Monday’s debut figures of 1.23 million up to 1.30 million. That saw Nine win the night, with Seven somewhere off in the distance, Ten and the ABC close for third and fourth — and that was the night. 

Married at First Sight also ate the demos. Ten’s The Amazing Race Australia lost viewers — 619,000 — down around 100,000 or more from its solid showing last week. A case of being MAFS-ed?

Seven’s The Good Doctor — not so good, pulling in only 473,000 nationally. Fading fast, call the ratings crash cart, 60 minutes of emergency content please, delivered by IV, thanks producers. Now!

Put a fork in them, the election is almost done.
