Nine has won its 18th night in a row off the back of a rare Thursday night episode of Married at First Sight.

Despite the show dropping below 800,000, a rarity for the powerhouse, the social experiment was still easily the top non-news show of the evening and was #1 in all key demos.

This wraps up the first week of MAFS with four episodes airing in total:

Monday: 964,000 
Tuesday: 992,000
Wednesday: 891,000
Thursday: 773,000

Married at First Sight was followed by the second episode of the new The Equalizer series with 280,000 which was down on the show’s premiere episode on Wednesday night which had 352,000.

On Seven the broadcast aired back-to-back-to-back episodes of Home and Away with an average of 446,000. This was followed by Wife Swap Australia with 238,000 which was down on the numbers from last Wednesday’s 306,000.

Bondi Rescue returned to 10 for the first time this year with 259,000, as the team dealt with lifesaving during the pandemic. 

This was followed by the year’s second episode of Gogglebox Australia which had 517,000 which was slightly up on the 502,000 that it had for its launch episode last week.

On The Project, 257,000 and 378,000 tuned in as the show covered the outrage over Peter Dutton’s comments on the Brittany Higgins case, and the team from Bondi came in for some cross-promotion ahead of the show’s season premiere. 

On the ABC, Backroads aired its conquering isolation special with 439,000 tuning in which was down on the 520,000 that the show had last week.

Q+A continues to adjust to its move from Monday’s to Thursday’s, with the current affairs program once again unable to break 300,000.

The top rating show on SBS last night was The World’s Greatest Places with 141,000.
