The Block had a big backyard-filled night on Sunday, scoring 1,064,000 viewers as per OzTAM’s metro data.

It was the most viewed TV of the night, as feuds over backyard budgets blew up and the cheating scandal from earlier this season reared its familiar head.

Next in the ratings was Nine News with 1,033,000 viewers, followed by Seven News with 947,000, ABC News with 647,000, and 60 Minutes with 623,000.

On Nine, the late news had 337,000 viewers while Nine News: First at Five had 257,000.

Also on 10 was The Sunday Project with 373,000 viewers, 10 News First 262,000 and CSI: Vegas with 255,000.
