Auction seals Nine’s final week

The Block Auction helped Nine to clinch the final week of the 2020 ratings year.

Nine saved the best til last with The Winner Announced on a whopping 1.79m viewers, being the highest rated non-sport audience of the year.

But the rest of the week went Seven’s way with SAS Australia wrapping after a strong first season.

While 10 talks about 50 weeks of scheduling it struggled outside of HYBPA? but the context of production shutdown when Amazing Race Australia might have been screening is important.
