Wednesday Ratings | THE BLOCK continues unchallenged

Advertisement

Nine strolling through to the end of the year, Seven appear to be limping, and 10 is all but terminal.

A Current Affair (737,000) still under the all important 800k, though picked up 100k on last night for Nine. The Block (898,000) isn’t getting any competition, allowing what is usually the lowest ep of the week to be one of the biggest. Love Island Australia (292,000) drawing smaller numbers after for a bigger BVOD play, and Botched (126,000) is all about the boobs and bad plastic surgery (we’ve seen it all before).
Nine first in both primary (20.6%) and network (29.5%) rankings.

Seven open with their best for the night, with Home and Away (578,000) finding a new level just sub-600k. SAS Australia (474,000) absolutely sank for its final episode of season two, and with a 4 part special of punters starting next week it’s unlikely it’ll rate much better. Only a small audience cares about America’s Got Talent (216,000).
Seven second in both primary (17.8%) and network (26.8%) rankings.

Thanks to weak commercial competition and reasonable results from the 7:30 (537,000)/Hard Quiz (552,000) pairing the ABC land second in the primetime slot. Gruen (657,000) welcomed back for season 13 as the biggest thing in the later night slot, and paired with Frayed (259,000) – which is doing good Total TV business – won that. A repeat of Back (114,000) and a new ep of Adam Hills: The Last Leg (84,000) finishes their night.
ABC third in both primary (12.9%) and network (17.3%) rankings.

What is 10 going to do? The Project (261,000 6:30pm; 406,000 7pm) delivers criminally poor ratings, The Graham Norton Show (243,000) is barely window dressing waiting for The Bachelorette, and one new and two repeat episodes of Bull (214,000; 186,000; 124,000) is barely appealing to fans. Lots more work required here – D minus.
10 fourth in both primary (9.1%) and network (16.1%) rankings.

SBS’s Wednesday opened with the first ep of a new Michael Mosley doco Australia’s Health Revolution (262,000), a new ep of 24 Hours In Emergency (225,000), and the first of four eps of new Australia drama New Gold Mountain (173,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (6.5%) and network (10.3%) rankings.
