Nine won the ratings again last week -but by just 0.3% which frankly may not be a big enough lead to hold off Seven in timeshifted numbers. But it will be another 7 days before that result is clear.
Credit where credit is due -all 4 episodes of The Block finished ahead of every other entertainment show on air.
Meanwhile in the Drama stakes The Secret Daughter edged ahead of Doctor Doctor. Home and Away, Hyde & Seek, The Wrong Girl and Neighbours followed behind.
