    You can see the ratings momentum building again for the girls, particularly after a big win against the Phillipines last Saturday night. I’d imagine if they had another game this Saturday night you’d start to see 800k-1m in an earlier slot increasing on last week, it was big water-cooler talk at work today. A lot of people stayed up and watched the match.

        1. Given The Block has run 52 long, long episodes this year they could easily make it a year round weekly show. Once a week as part of a bigger schedule it would offer a show a lot of people like on a consistent basis whilst also allowing time slots to be available each week for other content. Its consistent omnipresence would also result in the need for less promotion as everyone would know exactly when it was on.

          I would never watch it but a consistent program that is on all year round should be a ratings success.
