  1. I have been watching The Block an and off this season….mostly 2nd screen as nothing else much grabbed my attention…I could not get excited about Masterchef Celebrity this time …

  2. Considering there has been nothing decent on TV for weeks now, its no wonder it rated. People just watching just because. I know my family did. I didn’t personally but there really is nothing on to watch. Nine honestly got lucky really these past few weeks because Seven and Ten don’t have any decent offerings so the show built up again. When it had competition, we saw how low The Block went and where it was at.
