There was good news and bad news for TEN last night.
Australian Survivor finished in front of Seven’s Hell’s Kitchen but from there the night was an utter disaster.
Yet none of the 3 reality shows were in the same timeslot.
The Block trounced the competition with 1.29m viewers, a lift on last Sunday, defeating Sunday Night (790,000) and Modern Family (274,000).
For those wanting to compare the big three reality shows, The Block‘s 1.29m was twice Australian Survivor (622,000) and Hell’s Kitchen Australia (544,000). Seven’s show lost 273,000 viewers compared to its launch.
Nine had a winning night including with Nine News and 60 Minutes.
TEN’s poor performance enabled SBS to land in the Top 20 twice with Titanic: The New Evidence and Scotland: Rome’s Final Frontier.
