TV Report March 5, 2024:

Nine TV Report

Married at First Sight

Nine’s evening began with the Couples Retreat at Byron Bay continuing on Married at First Sight. 

In the aftermath of Boys and Girls Night, the reveal of Jack’s inappropriate behaviour towards Sara sends shockwaves through the group.

Sara informs Tim of his friend’s actions only to be concerned by his subdued reaction. Worried that Tim might never become the assertive and supportive man she needs, Sara issues an ultimatum: confront Jack or risk losing her forever. Tim continues to struggle between honouring his wife’s wishes and facing a confrontation with Jack that he’s unsure he can handle. 

Eden was also grappling with a dilemma – she’s holding a bombshell secret that threatens to devastate one couple and create havoc in the experiment. Wrestling with guilt and anxiety, Eden faces a daunting decision: reveal the truth and risk losing her friends in the group or maintain silence and jeopardise her relationship with Jayden.

Timothy’s newfound vulnerability and openness with his wife has ushered in a new dawn for their relationship and they begin to find the closeness she has longed for. 

Tensions escalated and the final night drinks became a battleground as the drama surrounding Jack erupted. For the first time in the experiment, Tori’s trust in Jack wavers as she is faced with the reality of her husband’s actions.

As the group prepares to leave Byron Bay, the web of lies and deceit woven by one participant is on the brink of unravelling.

A Current Affair

Over on A Current Affair, a kind-hearted Sydney cafe run by people living with disability is facing final months of operation due to its pay-it-forward style and met with a woman sacked after a TV interview as NDIS minister admits the system is not safe enough.

Seven TV Report

Australian Idol

Over on Seven, Tyler and TJ were eliminated from the competition after the nation locked in their top 8 artists.

The Top 10 came out of the gates with an electric group performance of Silverchair’s Straight Lines, before taking to the stage to hear who was safe and who would sing again for their spot in the competition.

Across the country, more than 2.1 million votes were placed, with TJ, 24, from Karratha; Tyler, 21, from the Sunshine Coast; Ivana, 20, from Victoria; and Kiani, 17, from Bribie Island landing in the bottom four. 

On leaving the competition, TJ said: “Thank you so much to the judges who have helped craft me into an artist who is ready to take on the world. Everything you have done has meant so much to me. I feel like I walked through this door for people to be inspired. I want to leave it open for people to come through.”

A grateful Tyler shared: “Thank you for betting on me as an artist and the amazing feedback. This isn’t the end. This has helped me exponentially with my career and what I love to do.”

Home & Away

Before Australian Idol was Home & Away as Remi came clean to Bree. Tane was dragged in the Coastal News and Roo found a clue, or was it a red herring? 

10 TV Report

The Project

The Project on 10 reported on Sam Kerr’s charge over an alleged racial harassment incident. The team also had on the show Tom Cashman and Crowded House. 

Australian Survivor

On 10’s Australian Survivor, betrayals on both sides of the tribe see Alex with the OG Titans while Kitty is now on the bottom. After sporadic gameplay from Raymond, will his alliance trust him enough to help him pull off his risky advantage and cast the ultimate vote?

At Tribal Council, Ray reveals he wants to be voted out tonight. But during the conversations, Kirby hands her Immunity necklace to Rianna. When JLP calls this out, Feras and Raymond are concerned there is another plan going on.

Caroline leads the voting by writing Raymond’s name down and out loud saying how much she loves and will miss him. The rest of the tribe seems to follow suit, while Ray feigns despondency. When JLP asks if anyone has a hidden Immunity Idol they’d like to play, Ray turns to the rest of the tribe and explains his advantage.

As the votes are read out, it becomes obvious Raymond has pulled off his plan, and Valeria is voted out.



On 7:30, the program met with parents who felt let down by the childcare system, investigated questions over the AUKUS deal and met with a family devastated by drownings who are pleading for clearer signs.
