Nine has continued its winning streak which now sits at 14 days after once again registering the #1 primary channel (24.6%) and network (22.5%). This continued success is thanks in large part to the eternal dominance of Married at First Sight which had picked up where it left off last year as the #1 entertainment program in Australia.

MAFS had 862,000 viewers and was #1 in all key demos last night as two more brides walked down the aisle to their anticipating grooms. The first wedding was Domenica and Jack‘s ‘dream wedding’ before Ella and Mitch made headlines for how randy they were for each other. The episode remained steady after a strong launch on Monday (869,000), with an audience surge also expected from the live BVOD viewing. 

On Seven, Home and Away had 535,000 viewers as the soap aired its second episode of the year.
The Voice: Generations then had 500,000 viewers as the coaches selected their grand finalist’s with Keith Urban choosing Ty and Eddie, Rita Ora choosing Caitlin and Tim, Guy Sebastian choosing The Wenas and Jessica Mauboy picking Kelsi and Jessica. This audience was fairly steady after 529,00, on Monday.

On 10, The Project had  246,000 (6:30pm) and 401,000 (7:00pm) as the show covered anti-vaxxers having spent a second day protesting out the front of Parliament House.

Australian Survivor was down to 492,000 viewers after a launch of 608,000 on Monday. The episode was fairly straightforward with Briana being a dead woman walking after her failed power play in the first episode, once her tribe lost the immunity challenge she was an easy vote for her tribe.

On the ABC, Catalyst had 319,000 viewers for The Secret Life of Our Urban Birds: A Catalyst Special.

The top program on SBS was a repeat of Great Continental Railway Journeys which had 211,000.
