It was no contest last night as The Block effectively doubled Dance Boss and Australian Survivor.
Nine pulled an impressive 1.14m viewers for its reno show and topped the demos, leaving Seven and TEN to battle it out. Dance Boss debuted to 599,000 viewers (but would probably prefer I told you that in 28 days) just ahead of Australian Survivor on 592,000. Both were behind Australian Story on 639,000.
Doctor Doctor returned to 726,000, just below its 2017 season premiere of 758,000, beating out Have You Been Paying Attention? on 661,000 (for the most part the two were neck and neck). Four Corners, Media Watch and Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back followed.
Seven was stronger early in the evening with Seven News and The Chase winning. ACA won for Nine again.
