Ratings: Ambulance Australia beats Take Me Out return but The Good Doctor improves for Seven.

For the record the number was also higher than Blind Date on Tuesday and even above Seven’s Emergency Call on Monday.
The Block still comfortably won the slot at 1.02m topping the night and the demos. That helped The Big Bang Theory to a solid season return at 712,000 although the repeat episode fell considerably to 458,000 as viewers went from honeymoon to pre-wedding plots…. 7:30 and Ask the Doctor followed.
