Sunday Ratings | THE BLOCK delivers massive ratings for a controversial auction finale

- ADVERTISEMENT -

There was, apparently, other shows on free-to-air last night too. Not that Nine wanted you to know about it.

The season seventeen finale of The Block (1,695,000 avg (1,555,000 finale; 1,835,000 winner)) was overblown – nearly an hour over the original scheduled time, over the top with its drama, and over all a massive winner. This puts the finale in the top 10 programs of the year – a huge result for another 50 episode season. It was also up year-on-year. 60 Minutes (688,000) enjoyed the after-Block halo pretty nicely too. The First 48 (244,000) rounded out a winning night.
Nine first in both primary (40.8%) and network (46.6%) rankings.

Meanwhile, over on Seven, 7News Spotlight (499,000) did a special on ABBA that will probably do reasonable business when Total TV numbers are added in next week. Border Security (274,000) was only ever filler, and a repeat of MOVIE: White House Down (169,000) offered an option to those not interested in auctions or minutes.
Seven second in both primary (14%) and network (20.8%) rankings.

The ABC leant into the night with another ep of Restoration Australia (487,000) and the season two premiere of stunning Australian drama Total Control (331,000), which also struggled because of some show out of Melbourne but should pick up nicely with next week’s Total TV figures. Noughts and Crosses (122,000) and a repeat of Stateless (28,000) run out the night.
ABC third in primary (9.9%) and fourth in network (13.6%) rankings.

The Sunday Project (247,000 6:30pm; 312,000 7pm) continues to pull down 10’s Sunday night schedule. Those numbers are beyond the pale even though they lifted ever so slightly on last week. Celebrity MasterChef Australia (395,000) slips lower, even on last week. CSI: Vegas (167,000) and FBI (155,000) fill out what ended up being a pretty light night.
10 fourth in primary (9.1%) and third in network (14.1%) rankings.

Sunday on SBS rolls out with penultimate episode of Inside Central Station (127,000). Australia Burns: Silence of the Land (81,000) delivers a sobering reminder of the 2020 bushfires in Australia, and the night fills out with a repeat of
Marry Me, Marry My Family (48,000).
SBS fifth in both primary (3.1%) and network (4.9%) rankings.
