The Block has begun its 2020 run with 947,000 viewers and a win in the demos. That’s just shy of 2019’s launch of 991,000.
No doubt Farmer Wants a Wife gave it added grief this year, drawing 864,000 last night (and a win when regionals are added). Next was ABC’s Shetland (577,000), but Family Feud struggled on just 293,000, down on last week’s 330,000.
Later Vera (691,000) eclipsed 60 Minutes (559,000) then 7News Spotlight: Catching a Madman (342,000) which was a hefty switch-off given its lead-in.
Nine network won Sunday with 31.7% then Seven 28.7%, ABC 18.6%, 10 12.5% and SBS 8.6%.
Nine News (1.07m) was best for Nine with a late edition drawing 268,000.
Seven News was #1 with 1.19m for Seven. Between Two Worlds will doubtless have to be moved again after just 126,000 / 104,000 in a double episode -last in it slot.
ABC News drew 755,000. Compass was 166,000 and the final edition of The Sound was 122,000.
The Sunday Project pulled 398,000 / 282,000 for 10. 10 News First was 239,000. FBI managed just 175,000 / 149,000.
On SBS it was SBS World News (199,000), The Virus: What Went Wrong? (190,000) and Lost Pyramids Of The Aztecs (182,000).
MotoGP led multichannels on 10 BOLD at 181,000.
