Once again, The Block proved unbeatable in the entertainment slot, nailing 835,000 viewers as per OzTAM’s metro data.

There was beef amongst the contestants after the judges gave one pair a perfect score on their hallway: despite the fact that only one of their hallways was finished. There was also what can only be described as ‘Tree-gate’, when one team thought another had taken all the trees for their backyard. The drama is relentless!

Next in prime time entertainment was episode two of Celebrity MasterChef, which had 601,000 viewers and featured something called ‘slutty sandwiches’,

In third was SAS Australia with 585,000 viewers. There are five celebs left ahead of Wednesday’s final, and Monday’s ep saw them write gut-wrenching letters to their loved ones and then…set them on fire?

Two of the contestants had an argument about the merits of sweet potato chips versus regular potato hot chips (a timely debate), and all of the celebs were faced with a brutal assault course, which left one on an IV and another throwing up. Delightful dinner time viewing, as always!

On top of the ratings overall was Seven News with 1,079,000 viewers, followed by Nine News with 996,000, ABC News with 743,000, and A Current Affair with 709,0000.

Also performing well in non-news was 10’s Have You Been Paying Attention? with 697,000 viewers. The rest of 10’s night had The Project with 483,000 viewers and 10 News First with 336,000.

For the ABC, Four Corners had 602,000, 7.30 had 558,000, Media Watch had 504,000 and Australian Story had 503,000.

Over on Seven, Home and Away had 589,000 viewers and The Chase had 560,000.

Finally for Nine, Hot Seat had 486,000 viewers. Nine also premiered Love Island Australia which scored 311,000 viewers on metro, as well as 57, 000 on live streaming.

The Nine Network won the night overall with 28.5 per cent of the daily share, followed by the Seven Network with 25.7 per cent and Network 10 with 21.1 per cent. Next was the ABC TV Network with 17.6 per cent, then the SBS Network with 7.0 per cent.

Now looking to OzTAM’s TotalTV Report for Monday October 4, once again, Seven News was on top with a total TV audience of 1,668,000 viewers (metro: 1,015,000, regional: 617,000, BVOD: 36,000).

In second was The Block with 1,654,000 total viewers (metro: 995,000, regional: 397,000, BVOD: 215,000), and in third was Nine News at 1,372,000 (metro: 989,000, regional: 346,000, BVOD: 36,000).

The program with the highest lift on overnight was SAS Australia at 30 per cent, bringing it to a total audience of 1,131,000 (metro: 597,000, regional: 273,000, BVOD: 151,000).
