Dancing dips to 558,000 metro viewers as MAFS remains #1

After recording its biggest launch ratings since 2015 on Sunday, with 774,000 metro viewers tuning in, Seven’s latest iteration of Dancing With The Stars fell to 558,000 metro viewers on Monday.

Model/actress and former Miss Universe contestant Erin McNaught was eliminated on the second night of the All Stars edition of Dancing, which has seen former contestants from previous seasons reunite to have another crack at the competition.

Dancing’s 558,000 metro viewers made it the #9 program of the evening, with more metro viewers watching Home And Away (564,000).

Meanwhile, Married at First Sight (MAFS) was once again the top rating show of the evening, with 1.093 million metro viewers tuning into Nine for the Final Vows episode as couples decided on their futures.

MAFS also took out the three key advertising demos.

Nine had the only two programs with over a million metro viewers, as 1.004 million watched Nine News 6:30. The top 5 programs of the night were rounded out by news formats, with Seven News taking 998,000 metro viewers, Seven News at 6.30 with 986,000 and Nine news with 970,000 metro viewers.

In terms of other non-news programming, ABC’s Australian Story aired to 524,000 metro viewers

The second week of Ten’s new primetime show What The Hell Just Happened? was disappointing, as the program pulled in just 237,000 metro viewers in the 7:30pm slot, landing well outside the Top 20 programs for the evening.

Ten was, however, able to claim the position of having the #1 multi-channel, as 10 Bold pulled a 4.4% share.

Nine was the #1 network on Monday, with a 33.9% network share ahead of Seven (25.9%), ABC (16.5%) and Ten (15.5%).
