The Block underpinned Nine’s night with 1.54m as the #1 show. Both Nine News (1.37m) and ACA (1.23m) won their slot, aided by Hot Seat‘s “Block” episode (785,000) in which Brad and Lara won $50,000 for the Tourette’s Syndrome of Australia.

  1. Good news.From next Monday You don’t have to suffer with the Bogans on the Block The Nerds on the Big Bang Theory are back.you can’t blame Yesterday’s Home and Away viewers who watched it as teens a quarter of a century ago that are now today’s Thirty Somethings almost for switching over even since those River Boys came along.Couple that with other Multi Channel US Sitcoms elsewhere and you don’t have to be a genius to see what most of us would watch.

  2. A bit disappointed to see Home and Away doing badly lately. Although it’s a repetitive soap I would rather it topped the 7pm slot than the bogans on the Block or Masterchef. I’m really annoyed with the reality renaissance we are going through. I can already see the 2.5 million viewers for another reincarnation of Big Brother *shudder*

  3. Must admit i was expecting 1.5m for Revenge last night but it seems Nines Voice viewers headed to the ABC. Great to see Amazing Race on the rise though. Next week without The Block should be interesting.
