Channel Nine won Monday night’s TV bragging rights after The Block and Karl Stefanovic’s This Time Next Year pulled in the punters.
The Block kept up its head of steam, winning 1.07 million eyeballs last night according to OzTAM figures, while the tearjerker This Time Next Year managed an impressive 931,000.
Nine won the night overall with 29.7 per cent audience share, however, rival Seven wasn’t far away with 27.5 per cent. Ten clawed back third position with 18.5 per cent, but only just to the ABC’s 17.7 per cent. SBS managed 6.6 per cent.
Seven’s Hell’s Kitchen seems to have hit the bottom and levelled out managing 607,000 viewers last night. It was the exact same number who tuned in for Ten’s Australian Survivor.
Nine’s 6pm news also pipped Seven with 1.11 million viewers versus Seven’s 1.06 million. The networks also aren’t quite tired of Diana 20th anniversary death specials despite obvious viewer fatigue. Seven’s The Story of Diana managed 486,000 last night.
For Ten, interestingly Have You Been Paying Attention? managed 639,000, some 32,000 more than the earlier running Survivor.
The ABC’s Monday night current affair line-up went thus – 7pm news (755,000), 7:30 (687,000), Australian Story (653,000), Four Corners (558,000), Media Watch (498,000) and Q&A (401,000).
The SBS’s best was Clean Eating: The Dirty Truth which could muster only 264,000.
