Tuesday Ratings | THE BLOCK takes the win on a slower night

Seven take the wins by slim margins despite Nine’s primetime wins…while 10 a very distant third.

Home and Away (587,000) slides under 600k but only just, so it’s still OK. SAS Australia (631,000) finishes its run in a clear second place, and a repeat of Inside Chernobyl (277,000) finalises the night for Seven. Their News product really made the difference in the share.
Seven first in both primary (19.9%) and network (29.5%) rankings.

A Current Affair (685,000) WAY down for Nine than normal, and The Block (849,000) down a little but not much. An acceptable amount for its usual slide. Love Island Australia (279,000) down on last night’s premiere, though the BVOD numbers are where the business is at. A repeat of Travel Guides (175,000) draws the night to a close.
Nine second in both primary (19.8%) and network 27.7(%) rankings.

10 struggling as The Project (260,000 6:30pm; 431,000 7pm) diabolical again. The Dog House Australia (480,000) premieres to less than excellent numbers.
The Cheap Seats (330,000) down on last week, and it appears mid-300s is their normal, while a new and repeat ep of NCIS: Los Angeles (140,000; 108,000) completes the night.
10 third in both primary (11.3%) and network (19.8%) rankings.


7:30 (501,000) does OK for the ABC, though paired with The Greek Islands with Julia Bradbury (339,000) slides the two into fourth in the slot. Step Into Paradise (268,000) and a repeat of Gatwick: The Last Chance Hotel (96,000) don’t keep too many people watching in the later and late night.
ABC fourth in both primary (10.7%) and network (15.1%) rankings.

SBS’s current affairs Tuesday starts with a repeat of Great American Railroad Journeys (208,000), then into Insight (162,000), Dateline (124,000), and The Feed (83,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (4.7%) and network (7.9%) rankings.

Sunrise (248,000)
The Today Show (226,000)
ABC Breakfast (209,000 (125,000 ABC; 84,000 ABC News))
