Nine nabs second ratings week
The battle between The Block and House Rules has given Nine its second ratings week this year.
Last week Nine was dominant thanks to its Reality shows and Nine News.
Seven took a Celebrity Splash plunge for the very same reasons, due largely to House Rules under-performing. The battle between The Block and House Rules was the week’s biggest decider. With its strategic coding, Nine nabbed 9 of the week’s top 10 titles.
