From 7:30pm last night Seven was relegated to fourth in its slot, barely able to rise above the 500,000 mark.
The Block won its slot at 1.04m viewers and topped the demos but Australian Survivor made a concerted challenge rising to 793,000 for its penultimate episode.
An Australian Story repeat profiling the late Samuel Symons followed at 717,000 then 7:30 and the debut of Emergency Call, which was just 512,000 for Seven.
Have You Been Paying Attention? won its slot at 731,000 over Doctor Doctor‘s 632,000 and Four Corners‘ 632,000. Media Watch followed while a movie on Seven failed to excite.
