• Michelle becomes fourth All Star voted off Australian Survivor
• Seven wins 6pm, rest of the night a challenge against all others
Looks like there could no stopping Nine in Q1 ratings year again as Married At First Sight pushed above 1.1m for the second time this season with an episode that featured two weddings with some great back stories that pulled an audience just 14,000 short of the opening night numbers.
Also helping Nine to victory was A Current Affair on 782,000.
Out of news on Seven, Home and Away did 601,000 followed by My Kitchen Rules: The Rivals on 439,000, the episode down from 517,000 a week ago.
And get this, the numbers actually lifted for the US drama 9-1-1 to 500,000.
The live telecast of the Academy Awards did 305,000 on Seven in the afternoon. A repeat in the evening on 7flix could only manage 124,000.
Australian Survivor: All Stars was 10’s best with 605,000, down from 623,000 from the launch episode a week ago.
The Project 7pm did 496,000 and later in the night Hughesy, We Have A Problem was on 269,000.
Back Roads was competitive at 8pm with 635,000 which pushed it ahead of both Australian Survivor and My Kitchen Rules.
Four Corners did 568,000 after 589,000 a week ago.
Media Watch again did well on 588,000 after 646,000 a week ago. Several commentators opened both barrels on the show since the episode a week ago, but it doesn’t seem to have deterred much of the audience.
Later in the evening, Hamish Macdonald hosted his second Q&A with 399,000 after 462,000 a week earlier.
The best from SBS Monday was Michael Mosley: Trust Me I’m a Doctor on 144,000.
