The last week of summer will be remembered for another week dominated by Nine and Endemol Shine Australia’s Married At First Sight. After bumper crowds of 1.2m and then 1.09m, the third episode did 1.020m. Another four couples met families and friends and it was business as usual – a cheating scandal was revealed and one couple split and then quit the show after spending the night apart and deciding the experiment is not working for them.
Also contributing to Nine’s first-place finish was A Current Affair on 696,000 after starting the week over 700,000.
Paramedics did 646,000, managing to grow after a very impressive 627,000 last week.
