Sunday 8 March 2020

Good point.

But there’s no shying away that Married (at least at this stage) is for some reason a long way behind previous seasons, which were also against a much stronger MKR. Many fans online have stated it’s not a good season of Married either.

I wonder has it all been made up for in VPM catch-up?

Everything reaches a peak and then declines. Everyone can see through how the whole thing is manipulated for maximum drama. The peak for MAFS was last year. It’s downhill from here.

Yes - Married is down and no the catch up and on-line don’t make up the difference, but I wouldn’t draw any conclusions based on last night’s numbers.

Worth noting that, despite the dominance by Nine, 10 was up on the same Sunday last year when it managed just 11.8%. That night CHRIS & JULIA’S SUNDAY NIGHT TAKEAWAY had 259,000 and the earlier PROJECT was also a lot lower.

I think it wasn’t just Married At First Sight which peaked in popularity in 2019 but dating, relationship and wedding TV right across the board. Every Australian network including to some extent the public broadcasters (granted that much of what the ABC & SBS comissioned were mainly one off documentaries and/or in a more observational style than the likes of MAFS, but still…) had a go at something last year, but this year we’ve seen Seven cancel most of their dating, relationship or wedding themed “reality” shows - First Dates is the only one they’re still running but going by its ratings performance of late, I wouldn’t be overly surprised if it doesn’t return next year. Love Island is probably also unlikely to return due to a combination of poor ratings for the Australian version on Nine and tragic outcomes that have rocked the UK version.

So with all of that in mind, it wouldn’t overly surprise me if the only shows in the genre of dating, relationship & wedding-themed TV which will still be on-air in 2021 are MAFS and The Bachelor/ette…maybe Bachelor In Paradise depending on how it goes for Ten this year.

Can we agree that if Dancing With The Stars is to return next year, Ten would probably be wise to air it towards the end of the year when there’s minimal competition and viewers are actually looking for something to watch?

Dancing with the Stars is dead. Regardless of the fact that it was up against the cricket and today is a public holiday in Melbourne… It’s just a dated first that is not resonating with viewers anymore.

Thank you for these, very interesting, don’t often see Foxtel VPM so soon.

So 936,646 total for the final (FTA + Foxtel) excluding regional FTA which can’t be posted here So it’d surely go above 1m total!

That’s what I’ve been saying for ages. They haven’t got the right rights lol

Crazy crazy Idea I know and yes I know Saturday is a dead Zone

But dancing us getting what 350-450 on Sundays?

Would it rate higher on Saturdays?

9Gem codes the Cricket Final as “Pre-game” and “Final”. If Seven had the rights, it would have coded it as Pre-Game, First Innings, Innings Break, Second Innings and Post-Match.

Kudos for Nine for keeping it simple.
