Viewers of Australia, we have a new TV king and his name is thy Honey Badger!

Last night the all-conquering Block was dethroned as TV’s top entertainment show after it was beaten by Ten’s The Bachelor according to OzTam metro numbers.

Admittedly, it was tighter than a day before pay day, the dating show pulling 871,000 to the renovator’s delight with 846,000. The Block’s numbers its second worst for the 2018 series.

Nine still won Wednesday night with 27.8 per cent but only just – Seven posting 26.6 per cent share. Ten grabbed third with a respectable 21.6 per cent, the ABC had to settle for fourth and 17.5 per cent and SBS garnered 6.5 per cent of the evening’s eyeballs.

The Block aside, Nine’s 6pm news pulled 921,000, ACA had 780,000, Bite Club drew 490,000 and The Hot Seat enjoyed 486,000.

Seven’s 6pm news was the most watched show of the night with 1.018 million. Its other standouts were Home And Away (602,000), The Chase (583,000), Motorbike Cops (539,000), Highway Patrol (511,000) and 9-1-1 (415,000).

For Ten, The Project pulled 549,000 and a re-run of the fabulous flick Pretty Woman enjoyed 366,000.

The ABC’s comedy-led night went thus: 7pm news (704,000), Anh’s Brush With Fame (579,000), The Weekly With Charlie Pickering (575,000), 7.30 (532,000) and You Can’t Ask That (477,000).

Trains again saved SBS’ bacon, a repeat of Great British Railway Journeys pulling 239,000.
