Tuesday Ratings | THE BLOCK maintains its ratings dominance

SAS AUSTRALIA and THE MASKED SINGER AUSTRALIA continue to fight amongst themselves.

Nine get a strong lead-in to primetime with A Current Affair (802,000),
which The Block (840,000) benefits from even though it did slide a little on last night’s numbers. The season finale of The Hundred with Andy Lee (459,000) slides on last week, though still finished first in the later night timeslot. A repeat of Travel Guides (293,000) runs out the schedule.
Nine first in both primary (22.7%) and network (30.7%) rankings.

Home and Away (604,000) holds a strong second position for Seven, and all the advertising probably pays off as SAS Australia (592,000) lands maybe in second place. Australia: Now and Then (284,000) returns to underwhelming numbers and slides into third in the later slot, as S.W.A.T. (107,000) finishes up the night.
Seven second in both primary (18.5%) and network (27.3%) rankings.

10’s Tuesday is up and down. The Project (299,000 6:30pm; 495,000 7pm) continues its ratings slide into the week, as The Masked Singer Australia (599,000 avg (545,000 show; 653,000 reveal)) barrels towards the season finale next week and by now everyone pretty much knows who everyone is. Game over, and most likely third in the slot for Tuesday. The Cheap Seats (326,000) slips a little from last week, and is followed by repeats of NCIS (159,000) and NCIS: Los Angeles (83,000) to complete 10’s night.
10 third in both primary (12.1%) and network (18.8%) rankings.


7:30 (518,000) holds, as Back to Nature (288,000) continues to struggle…just as well it’s the season finale. The School That Tried To End Racism (254,000) doesn’t do well on overnights, but does pick up a reasonable audience in Total TV. How To Live Younger (171,000) draws the evening to a close.
ABC fourth in both primary (10%) and network (14.8%) rankings.

SBS’s Tuesday starts with a repeat of Great American Railroad Journeys (239,000), followed by Insight (169,000) and The Feed (67,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (4.9%) and network (8.4%) rankings.


16-39: The Block (203,000) finishes first, followed by The Masked Singer Australia reveal, Nine News 6pm/6:30pm, and The Masked Singer Australia show.

18-49: The Block (355,000) triumphant, ahead of The Masked Singer Australia reveal, Nine News 6pm/6:30pm, and Seven News 6pm.

25-54: The Block (415,000) takes the triple demo win, chased down by Nine News 6pm/6:30pm, The Masked Singer Australia reveal, and Seven News 6pm.


Bluey – EV (151,000) on ABC Kids/TV Plus takes the multi-channel win ahead of a tough pack.


Sunrise (247,000)
The Today Show (240,000)
ABC Breakfast (209,000 (134,000 ABC; 75,000 ABC News))


The Block (Nine) stays in first in the 7:30pm slot, having lifted 22% to 1,431,000; SAS Australia (Seven) lifted 37% to 1,174,000; and The Masked Singer Australia show/reveal (10) lifted 19/13% to 929,000/1,007,000 respectively.

The Block (191,000) does the biggest BVOD business, followed by SAS Australia (183,000) and Home and Away (139,000).
