What a night! Seven sizzle a big story for 7NEWS SPOTLIGHT that delivers no steak; Dami Im gets eliminated from CELEBRITY MASTERCHEF AUSTRALIA; and THE BLOCK serves Ronnie and Georgia (and Nine) another win.
The Block (1,100,000) pulls in over one million viewers again for a room reveal, and with only a couple of weeks to go it will bring home a big one when the auction-filled finale airs. 60 Minutes (585,000) followed but down on last week, and the night finished up with a new ep of The First 48 (172,000).
Nine first in both primary (26.8%) and network (36.4%) rankings.
Seven sizzled a big 7News Spotlight: Life and Death (436,000) however it couldn’t dint Nine’s primetime machine…or Celeb MasterChef. It was followed by another episode of Border Security (302,000) (they appear to have literally thousands of these lying around), which followed into the first of two eps of Grace (240,000). Criminal Confessions (93,000) ran into the late night for the home of the Big Red Train™.
Seven second in both primary (15.6%) and network (22.1%) rankings.
Simply diabolical ratings on 10 for The Sunday Project (250,000 6:30pm; 367,000 7pm) to start the week, slipping even further than last week to what I think is a new low. Celebrity MasterChef (573,000) struggles to stay in the commercial primetime race as the network’s only real hope, however an average offering from Seven saw it land second in primetime. It picked up a little on last week but is still under that important 600k benchmark. New episodes of CSI: Vegas (209,000) and FBI (133,000) round out the schedule.
10 third in both primary (12.9%) and network (18.9%) rankings.
Restoration Australia (458,000) isn’t doing anything much on the ABC, however it does face stiff opposition in the timeslot. Fires (321,000) slips further on last week, though the Total TV figures offer it some well-deserved ratings dignity. We Hunt Together (107,000) and a repeat of Stateless (36,000) complete the evening.
ABC fourth in both primary (11%) and network (14.7%) rankings.
Sunday night on SBS kicked off with the excellent Inside Central Station (190,000) and Australia Uncovered: The Children in the Pictures (138,000), and rounded out with a repeat of Scotland: Rome’s Final Frontier (89,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (5.1%) and network (7.8%) rankings.
16-39: The Block (236,000) comes in ahead of Celebrity MasterChef Australia, Nine News Sunday, The Sunday Project 7pm, and Seven News Sunday.
18-49: The Block (429,000) beat out Celebrity MasterChef Australia, Nine News Sunday, Seven News Sunday, and 60 Minutes.
25-54: The Block (520,000) completes the triple demo win, chased down by Nine News Sunday, Celebrity MasterChef Australia, Seven News Sunday, and 60 Minutes.
