Wednesday Ratings | THE BLOCK surges to takes its third win this week


10 manage to inch into third thanks to part 1 of Todd Sampson’s doco, as Wil Anderson’s new comedy panel show continues to slide.

A Current Affair (739,000) down on last night for Nine though still way ahead, as was The Block (834,000). That scandal just keeps on giving. Paramedics (472,000) won the later night slot, and then the audience split for either a repeat of Kings Cross ER (137,000) or Footy Classified (150,000).
Nine first in both primary (22.6%) and network (30.2%) rankings.

Seven in an interesting place with their Wednesday. Home and Away (612,000)
staying above 600k is solid work, though Nurses (378,000) hasn’t gained traction in the slot, landing a very distant fourth. A double ep of RFDS (427,000; 396,000) helped flesh out the later night for what has proven to be excellent Aussie drama.
Seven second in both primary (18.9%) and network (27%) rankings.

The Project (300,000 6:30pm; 498,000 7pm) continues to do reasonable business for 10, though well off the pace in the slots for both parts. Mirror Mirror (572,000) draws a good audience at 7:30pm even though it was third–much bigger than the franchise it replaced that finished last week. A triple repeat ep of Bull (184,000; 109,000; 76,000) completes the night with a whimper.
10 third in both primary (12%) and network (18.3%) rankings.

7:30 (584,000) and Hard Quiz (591,000) continue to be a great combo for the ABC, coming in a solid second in the slot. Question Everything (410,000) dips on last week, as does Rosehaven (399,000) in its final season. The night rounds out with Would I Lie To You? (67,000) and a repeat of Staged (101,000).
ABC fourth in both primary (11.9%) and network (16.3%) rankings.

SBS’s night started with Tony Robinson’s World By Rail (180,000), followed by a repeat of Princess Anne at 70 (200,000) and a new episode of War of the Worlds (63,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (4.8%) and network (8.3%) rankings.

16-39: The Block (189,000) lead Mirror Mirror, Nine News 6pm/6:30pm, and The Project 7pm.

18-49: The Block (345,000) beat out Mirror Mirror, Nine News 6pm/6:30pm, and Seven News 6pm.

25-54: The Block (410,000) lands the triple demo win, ahead of Nine News 6pm/6:30pm, Mirror Mirror, and Seven News 6pm.

Coronavirus: Public Update – AM (205,000) on ABC NEWS took the solid win in the multi-channel race.

Sunrise (248,000)
The Today Show (247,000)
ABC Breakfast (220,000 (129,000 ABC; 91,000 ABC News))
