Given Nine’s brass takes the view that Demos are more important than Total People, it won’t be happy tat The Block was pipped in all 3 demos by First Dates last night.
That’s despite The Block winning its timeslot in Total People. But it is rare for the show not to win its Demos, save for another show’s finale. Jamie Oliver flopped for TEN scoring a dismal 379,000 in 4th place.
Gold Coast Medical pipped Unreal Estate while Streets of Your Town debuted ahead of Todd Sampson’s Bodyhack.
Seven News and ABC News won their slots.
