Home and Away was under 600,000 with 583,000.

My Kitchen Rules was on 724,000 with the last episode for the week down on 766,000 on the same night last week.

Undercurrent: Real Murder Investigation did 415,000 after 277,000 a week ago.


A Current Affair did 743,000 after two nights over 850,000 earlier this week.

It was time for the Wednesday dinner parties, which always perform well for Married At First Sight. The dinner party last week was week seven’s second most-watched program on 1.288m. This week it was not far off Tuesday’s new high for MAFS with 1.329m.

New Amsterdam then did 493,000. A week ago Nine’s medical entrant was on 452,000.


The Project again hovered just above 400,000 after 7pm with Bananarama’s Keren and Sara guests on the show. They were great guests who seemed to really bond with the hosts. There should be an 80s pop sensation on every week.

Bondi Rescue returned to 7.30pm weekday primetime with a new season. The episode could only manage 321,000, but that was up over 100,000 on the Changing Rooms audience a week ago. A repeat episode then did 268,000.

Law & Order: SVU then did 167,000.


Hard Quiz was on 610,000 after 607,000 last week.

After 430,000 a week ago, midweek sitcom Rosehaven did 408,000.

Get Krackin’ then had 224,000 watching after 233,000 a week ago.


A repeat of Gourmet Farmer followed the SBS World News with 106,000. Repeats at 7.30pm seem to be a roadblock for audiences on some nights.

Great British Railway Journeys was on 173,000 followed by the biggest audience of the night watching Secrets Of The Chocolate Factory: Inside Cadbury with 339,000.

The second week of McMafia then was on 145,000 after 9.30pm after 173,000 last week.
