There were some big wins but big switch-offs last night with Seven, Nine, TEN and ABC all in front at various times.
The Block lorded over the 7:30 timeslot at an impressive 1.01m viewers and topped the demos. It was miles in front of Australian Survivor on 666,000, 7:30 on 597,000, Australian Story on 591,000 and Dance Boss down again at 447,000. Seven’s struggling show will wrap next Tuesday.
Have You Been Paying Attention? then hit the front at 747,000, beating Doctor Doctor, Four Corners and Gordon Ramsay on Seven. But around half of TEN’s audience did not stick around for Drunk History which averaged 367,000. Social media feedback was positive, but some just did not find the concept amusing at all (including questions about the inclusion of alcohol).
