Australia’s loss in The Ashes hasn’t been good for ratings as local audiences tuned out of day four’s screening last night with only 355,000 watching the first session, and 246,000 watching the second. The game had been attracting good numbers to Nine’s digital network, Gem, and creating a spike in its audience share, having attracted 800,000 viewers last Wednesday.

The Block Sky High saved the day though, cracking an audience of 1.548 million. The reno show was the evening’s highest rating program according to OzTam’s preliminary assessment. Combined with 60 Minutes which was just a hair behind on 1.547m, Nine had an audience share of 34.5%.

Seven followed closely behind with 31% with its Australian period drama A Place to Call Home beating Nine’s special on Bali in the 8:30 slot, taking 1.293m compared to 1.077 million.

Masterchef saw a jump after Wednesday’s slump, taking 773,000 viewers last night and seeing its 25s to 54s audience growing 13% from the first half to second half. Its new program Elementary took 690,000 and combined with Modern Family’s 533,000 to give the network 15.4% of audience share.

Grand Designs was the ABC’s highest rating show, coming 10th in the top 10 with 1.015m, while Dream Build took 798,000 and The Time of Our Lives had 693,000. The ABC had an audience share of 14.5%.

SBS had an audience share of 4.6%.
