Tuesday Ratings | Contestant controversy keeps THE BLOCK in first place

SAS AUSTRALIA and THE MASKED SINGER AUSTRALIA still arguing over who is winning second.

Nine have their regular Tuesday with A Current Affair (807,000) coming out strong from the News double, and The Block (855,000) nailing the win for the 7:30pm timeslot again, and even slips up a little on last night (and last week). The Hundred with Andy Lee (505,000) moves up to a season high and is starting to prove to be reliable in the slot. A repeat of Travel Guides (301,000) brings home the late night.
Nine first in both primary (23.4%) and network (31.1%) rankings.

Home and Away (608,000) has settled into its better position and enjoying a pleasing return for Seven, though still second by some distance. SAS Australia (586,000) slips to it’s lowest figures this season, while a repeat of
MOVIE: Lucy (154,000) fills out the later and late night schedule.
Seven second in both primary (19.6%) and network (27.3%) rankings.

The Project (318,000 6:30pm; 536,000 7pm) sits in what appears to be an acceptable range for 10 which is certainly not competitive. The Masked Singer Australia (614,000 avg (573,000 show; 654,000 reveal)) picks up a little on last night (down slightly on last week) and when averaged secures second in the timeslot. The Cheap Seats (358,000) has more than hit its stride…if only it could find numbers up in the 400’s again! At least this is it’s second-highest result this season. Repeats of NCIS (135,000) and NCIS: Los Angeles (103,000) round out 10’s offering.
10 third in both primary (11.9%) and network (18.5%) rankings.


Tuesday’s for the ABC are not improving. It used to be such a powerhouse here, however no longer. 7:30 (622,000) struggles in part due to it’s pairing with
Back to Nature (307,000). The School That Tried To End Racism (256,000)
premieres and doesn’t do great numbers, though it should find significantly more life in next week’s Total TV figures. How To Live Younger (179,000) premieres to semi-okay late night figures.
ABC fourth in both primary (10.8%) and network (15.4%) rankings.

SBS started with a repeat of Who Do You Think You Are? Australia (184,000) and then moved into their regular Tuesday current affairs line up of Insight (161,000), Dateline (103,000), and The Feed (62,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (4.2%) and network (7.7%) rankings.


16-39: The Block (195,000) landed in front of The Masked Singer Australia reveal/show, The Hundred with Andy Lee, and The Project 7pm.

18-49: The Block (359,000) beat out The Masked Singer Australia reveal, Nine News 6pm, The Masked Singer Australia show, and Nine News 6:30pm.

25-54: The Block (413,000) takes the triple demo win, followed by Nine News 6pm/6:30pm, The Masked Singer Australia reveal, and Seven News 6pm.


ABC News at Noon (161,000) on ABC News just pipped Bluey for the multi-channel win.


Sunrise (251,000)
The Today Show (242,000)
ABC Breakfast (208,000 (132,000 ABC; 76,000 ABC News))


First place in the 7:30pm battle stayed with The Block (Nine) as it lifted by 24% to 1,442,000 nationally. Second was confirmed for SAS Australia (Seven), which lifted 38% to 1,268,000, and The Masked Singer Australia (10) lifted 19% for the show portion to 952,000, and went up 18% for the reveal portion to 1,081,000. SAS Australia had the biggest national BVOD audience for the night on 195,000, followed closely by The Block on 186,000.
