My Kitchen Rules regains lead over Married at First Sight

My Kitchen Rules has topped Monday night ratings, retrieving the top spot from Married at First Sight, taking Seven to a win for the evening.

Alyse and Matt took to the kitchen last night and faced heavy criticism for using a jar of curry paste in their main course. Despite the misstep, it was positive news for MKR, with the show becoming the most watched program of the evening.

According to OzTAM’s overnight preliminary metro ratings MKR pulled 1.363m, slightly ahead of last week’s 1.340m.

The program was the most watched across key advertising demographics 16-39 and 25-54, but Nine’s Married at First Sight took out the 18-49s.

Married at First Sight’s second commitment ceremony saw 1.096m viewers tune in, falling from last week’s 1.107m.

Ten’s reality TV show competitor – I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here – gained viewers averaging 757,000, in front of last week’s 749,000.

Airing at 9:00pm Seven’s Bride & Prejudice was up from last Monday’s 636,000, pulling 731,000 viewers, while Nine’s rival show House Husbands managed 640,000 – falling from last week’s 669,000.

ABC’s Four Corners airing at 8:30pm saw Matt Brown report from the front lines of Mosul and averaged 478,000 falling from last week’s 648,000.

Airing at 9:15pm – just after Four Corners – ABC’s Media Watch pulled 561,000 viewers before managing 544,000 for Q&A.

In the 7pm time slot Nine’s A Current Affair averaged 903,000 viewers, in front of Seven’s Home and Away which pulled 809,000.

In the 6pm news battle for the evening, Seven managed 1.044m, ahead of Nine’s 1.006m. At 6:30pm Seven managed 990,000 behind Nine News’ 1.008m.
