Monday Ratings | THE BLOCK holds a mighty lead

HAVE YOU BEEN PAYING ATTENTION still strong for 10, but not as strong as it has been.

Nine kick off the night with a softer A Current Affair (709,000), that follows into The Block (835,000) which, though down on the reveal on Sunday, is still the biggest show in primetime. Love Island Australia (313,000) premieres soft, though expect massive BVOD numbers next week and beyond, and a repeat of Kath & Kim (147,000) finishes the night.
Nine first in both primary (20.2%) and network (28.5%) rankings.

Home and Away (589,000) under 600k for Seven (just) and lands as their bet for the night. SAS Australia (585,000) slips into third in the slot, as a repeat of MOVIE: Deadpool 2 (236,000) runs out their schedule.
Seven second in both primary (18.4%) and network (25.7%) rankings.

The Project (273,000 6:30pm; 483,000 7pm) starts the week under 500k for 10 which is not great. Celebrity MasterChef Australia (601,000) slides on Sunday’s premiere, though importantly stays above 600k, and Have You Been Paying Attention? (697,000) ticks up on last week but it’s a long way off its season best. Just for Laughs Uncut (221,000), and repeats of Just for Laughs (122,000), and The Graham Norton Show (77,000) complete the evening.
10 third in both primary (14.8%) and network (21.2%) rankings.


Current affairs night is Monday for the ABC, however this one is generally down across the board. 7:30 (558,000) and Australian Story (503,000) in a definite fourth for the slot, and both Four Corners (602,000) and Media Watch (504,000) are down on last week. China Tonight (207,000) and a repeat of Road To Now (109,000) run into the later evening.
ABC fourth in both primary (13.4%) and network (17.6%) rankings.

SBS’s Monday delivers thus: Deepwater Horizon: Ten Mistakes (111,000),
Saved By A Stranger (86,000), and a repeat of 24 Hours in Emergency (114,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (3.6%) and network (7%) rankings.
