My Kitchen Rules has ended its week just over 800,000, which is also its average for the four episodes of week two. No Thursday episode as the Big Bash returns to Seven. 10 will be the sole reality format in the early evening as Nine goes with US sitcoms at 7.30pm.
After the instant restaurant, Seven’s second episode of Undercurrent: Real Murder Investigation did 466,000, which narrowly trailed Nine’s New Amsterdam.
A Current Affair won its timeslot on 726,000 which was up marginally on Tuesday’s 715,000.
“A massive sex party” may not be the most accurate description of last night’s Married At First Sight, but with headlines like that the audiences should keep flocking to the show. Breakfast and drive radio seem to be talking about nothing but the Nine format this week. The show again set new 2019 records last night with 1.28m watching the first of the popular dinner party episodes.
New Amsterdam followed with 489,000, which won the timeslot.
The departure-a-day continues in the penultimate week of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! with comedian Tahir Bilgiç leaving the camp last night. Channel 10 noted after the he left: “We haven’t seen this many celebrity culls since the recent the Today show announcement”.
It then used that as a segue into Richard Reid’s comments about his former breakfast colleague Karl Stefanovic and his hair! Celebrity started on 527,000 and lifted to 537,000 for the elimination.
Law & Order: SVU followed with 238,000.
The channel’s new primetime breakfast show Get Krackin’ launched with 261,000 which is only an OK umber after 9pm, but spectacular if you rank it with the other breakfast shows.
The channel’s best last night after the news was Hard Quiz on 572,000.
