The Block’s over for another year and given last night’s finale numbers it’s a given it’ll be front right and centre again in 2021.
Last night’s episode pulled 1.428 million viewers rising to 1.792 million for the winner announcement according to OzTAM metro numbers.
However, 2019’s finale did 1.541 million for the show proper, with the winner announcement topping the 1.9 million mark.
On the back of The Block, Nine had a massive night, pulling 41.4 per cent of all of last night’s eyeballs (all channels).
Seven’s Beat The Chaser took a Block finale hit (583,000), but not a significant one give the strength of the opposition.
That left Seven with 23.2 per cent, the ABC did 14.3 per cent, 10 could only do 13.3 per cent and SBS had 7.6 per cent.
