Season high as The Block tops Sunday
Ratings: The Block, Big Music Quiz and Australian Survivor all enjoyed lifts on last week, but the night goes to Nine.
Sunday went Nine’s way with timeslot wins for Nine News, The Block and 60 Minutes.
The Block contestants Andy & Ben scored a perfect 30 from the judges, rewarded with a season high of 1.21m viewers.
Both The Big Music Quiz (873,000) and Australian Survivor (649,000) enjoyed lifts from last Sunday. So where did the extra viewers come from? It was ABC’s Howard on Menzies (also 649,000) that was down on last week’s Attenborough doco. Or maybe more people switched on last night…
Nine News and Seven News were neck and neck, but 60 Minutes edged ahead of Sunday Night with Vera a close third.
TEN’s movie was unable to compete while SBS was also up on its usual share.
Nine won the night with 31.4% then Seven 26.1%, ABC 17.6%, TEN 16.8% and SBS 8.1%.
The Block was #1 for Nine with 1.21m viewers followed by Nine News (1.11m) and 60 Minutes (765,000). A Doctor Doctor repeat was just 276,000.
Seven News (1.1m) was best for Seven followed by The Big Music Quiz (873,000), Sunday Night (693,000) and Criminal Minds (394,000 / 291,000).
ABC News (859,000), Vera (657,000) and Howard on Menzies (649,000) comprised ABC’s night. Compass was 249,000.
