The Block scores a twist for Nine
Ratings: Nine dominated early evening shows last night with a Block twist designed to cause a House Rules upset.
The Block was the night’s top show, but cleverly Nine did not reveal full scores, requiring its contestants to score one another’s renovations with the final scores to be revealed tonight, up against House Rules own reveal. A devious twist…
