Tuesday Ratings | THE BLOCK unchallenged as the battle rages for 2nd and 3rd


The 6pm News arm wrestle still making all the difference in who wins the night.

Home and Away (614,000) sitting in a solid position for Seven, as is SAS Australia (626,000) which, depending on how the numbers split, came second or third in the slot. Australian Gangster (340,000) finishes down on last night however keeps a reasonable late night audience.
Seven first in both primary (21.7%) and network (29.9%) rankings.

Nine continue to own prime time with A Current Affair (815,000) staying as high as it is, providing a solid lead-in to The Block (829,000) which while sliding in the week is still nearly 200k ahead in the slot to come first. The Hundred with Andy Lee (412,000) continues its up and down trend, and a late night repeat of Travel Guides (253,000) helps complete Nine’s schedule.
Nine second in both primary (21.4%) and network (29.4%) rankings.

The Project (296,000 6:30pm; 470,000 7pm) uncharacteristically down for 10. The Masked Singer Australia (634,000 avg (592,000 show; 676,000 reveal)) continues solid though slipping numbers that lands it second or third at 7:30pm depending on how you slice it. The Cheap Seats (324,000) up a little on last week though still a way of its seasonal best. A repeat of Best of The Sydney Comedy Festival (93,000) barely registers.
10 third in both primary (11.9%) and network (18.8%) rankings.

ABC draw solid eyes to 7:30 (560,000), however coupled with Back To Nature (295,000) the hour is uncompetitive. Juanita: A Family Mystery (242,000) slides to finish it’s run, and Decoding Danger (125,000) fills the late night around the late News bulletin.
ABC fourth in both primary (9.6%) and network (13.2%) rankings.

SBS’s current affairs Tuesday starts with a repeat of Who Do You Think You Are? Australia (230,000), and then into Insight (189,000), Dateline (121,000), and The Feed (65,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (4.9%) and network (8.6%) rankings.
