Nine’s scheduling of renovations, religion and baking won over audiences last night. The Block Sky High was the most highly rated show for the evening with 1.39m viewers while the second episode of The Great Australian Bake Off took 1.089m.

The new cooking show was up against Seven’s ABBA: Dancing Queen special (684,000 viewers) which was quickly pulled in to replace The Mole this week after unenthused audience numbers saw the show cut down from two nights a week to just Wednesdays.

Nine’s screening of new mini-series The Bible made it to number 10 of the country’s most popular programs last night with an audience of 880,000 tuning in, beating Seven’s Winners & Losers (867,000 viewers). Most viewers even stuck around for second part of The Bible at 10pm with the audience dipping to 793,000.

Channel Ten’s new Steven King drama The Dome saw a slight drop on last week’s million taking 900,000 viewers while Masterchef continued to linger in the tail-end of the top 20 shows with 719,000 viewers.

Nine led the free-to-air channels last night with 32.5% audience share according to OzTam's preliminary ratings, while Seven came in second with 25.1% and Ten had 18.5%. ABC and SBS followed with 17.4% and 6.5% respectively.
