The Block, The Voice battle for Monday win.

Renovation and singing shows remain neck & neck on Monday. Paying Attention does the heavy lifting for 10.

Two reality shows are still locked in battle -at least in metro overnights. The numbers are shifting once Total TV is revealed a week later.

Last night The Block pulled 660,000, in a vice-like grip with The Voice at 656,000 metro.

Both overshadowed 7:30 (543,000), Back Roads (458,000) and The Traitors which lifted slightly on its premiere to 250,000.

Thankfully for 10 Have You Been Paying Attention? doubled its lead-in to score 533,000, then Media Watch (374,000), Four Corners (325,000), Missing Persons Investigation (284,000), 911: Lone Star (225,000 / 154,000).

Seven network won Monday with 31.4% then Nine 27.4%, 10 17.4%, ABC 17.1% and SBS 6.7%.

Seven News was #1 at 986,000 / 963,000 then The Chase 590,000 / 346,000 and Home & Away (513,000).

Nine News (840,000 / 831,000) was best for Nine. A Current Affair led with 692,000 then Hot Seat (417,000 /256,000). Across the network were Footy Classified  (122,000) and 100% Footy (64,000).

The Project pulled 294,000 / 191,000. 10 News First was 228,000 / 165,000. A repeat of The Inspired Unemployed (Impractical) Jokers ​managed 196,000.

ABC News drew 619,000.  Q+A (199,000) and The Drum (149,000) followed.

On SBS it was SBS World News (176,000 / 135,000), 24 Hours in Emergency (82,000), Robson Green’s Weekend Escapes (80,000) and Britain’s Most Expensive Houses (53,000).

7TWO’s Doc Martin led multichannels at 115,000.

Sunrise: 213,000
Today: 180,000
News Breakfast: 88,000 / 52,000

    1. Lol. I love how after 1,000,000,000 seasons of the block you realised that it has nothing to do with building. The show is 95% drama and maybe 5% building

  1. I’m really enjoying Rita Ora on The Voice. Despite my reservations about importing coaches, she exudes such heart and joy. I’ve not yet warmed to Jason. And Sonya seems to come in and out of these! I get that they edit them all out of sequence, but its weird.

    And good to see Q&A double its audience numbers from last week! It would want to.

    1. If past series are any indication, Sonia features far more from phase 2 once chair turns are done (which I think is end of next week). BTW, more than decent 7 day catch-up numbers for The Voice at 1.46m.
