The season 12 finale of Gogglebox Australia saw away all contenders, including a rare Thursday edition of The Block.

The Block (679,000) performed as well as any of the end of week episodes do, though it was enough to help Nine win the primary channel (19.1%) for the night – especially now both football codes are done for the year (very importantly except State of Origin). A repeat of Paramedics (342,000) helped in the process. Nine’s network share (27.2%) slid into second place behind a stronger combined multichannel offering from Seven (27.6%).

Bluey (388,000) again beat everything on commercial TV–other than Gogglebox–that aired after 8:30pm…and that’s before you add in the numbers for the afternoon repeat (208,000) – a total of 596,000!

The Home and Away triple (467,000 average for three eps) and Britain’s Got Talent (201,000) offered little and saw results simpatico with effort offered. The season 32 premiere of The Amazing Race (127,000) managed to draw only hardcore fans at 10pm. Seven’s primary share (16.4%) was only reasonable because of their News offering at 6pm.

Diabolically for 10, The Bachelorette Australia (441,000) delivered a new record low for the series despite hyped up the hometowns. Luckily it was the free-to-air screening and season twelve finale of Gogglebox Australia (700,000) that did everything it could to help, though to no avail. 10’s shares were commercially uncompetitive – primary (14.6%) and network (21.5%).

Again, Sunrise (283,000) with a massive effort beat out The Today Show (231,000) and ABC Breakfast (213,000 [145,000 ABC; 68,000 ABC News]) in the brekky battle.
