  1. An impressive win by Seven, during The Block finale week. 3rd time this year they’ve stolen Nine’s week when they’ve been expected to lose (other two times were two Origin weeks)! Although they did hold onto main channel (by the skin of their teeth). As Ten collapsed without a major multiple night show. Seven also topped the demographics most nights, but The Block’s (over 1m for 25-55s) was way too powerful, same for total people in Melbourne.
