Despite the cyberattack that affected live TV broadcasts Nine was again #1 with a primary share of 28.0% and a network share of 36.7%, thanks to Married at First Sight which had over 1.106m tune in last night.

MAFS was #1 in all key demos after airing its commitment ceremony that saw Bryce cause a furore by writing leave and then crossing it out.

Afterwards, 60 Minutes had 738,000 as the show covered more of the royal infighting at Buckingham palace.

Earlier in the day, Nine’s NRL coverage had 225,000.


On Seven, the 7:30 pm slot was occupied by Shark Alarm: The Year of Swimming Dangerously which aired exclusive interviews with shark attack survivors, rescuers and marine experts. The episode had 286,000 viewers.

This was followed by the Matt Damon movie The Martian with 242,000.

Earlier in the day, the AFL had 334,000.


On 10, 618,000 watched the finale of The Amazing Race Australia. At the end of the show, 691,000 tuned in to see The Cowboys Brendon Crawley and Jackson Dening hit the mat to win The Amazing Race Australia and the $250,000 cash prize.

For their final challenge of the race, and with a little help from some eliminated teams, they had to match an obscure law with a state or territory in Australia. For each state or territory law they matched, they received a bag of puzzle pieces. When they had received all eight bags, they began the puzzle, which was matching the Indigenous mobs on the map of Australia.

Once their puzzles were complete, teams raced up Mount Kosciuszko to Beau Ryan who was waiting at the finish line. With The Gold Coast Girls hot on their heels, The Cowboys dug deep to climb the mountain first, and were named them winners of The Amazing Race Australia.
