Nine’s The Block was the most watched entertainment show of Wednesday night, narrowly seeing to Ten’s The Bachelor by 881,000 to 854,000, respectively.
Ten’s latest attempt at a homegrown drama, Playing For Keeps, debuted last night with a promising 583,000.
The Block was enough to give Nine the biscuits, winning last night with 28 per cent audience share. Seven took 26.9 per cent, Ten had 22.1 per cent, the ABC pulled 17.2 per cent and SBS had to settle for 5.8 per cent.
Seven’s 6pm news bulletin was the most watched show of the night with 961,000. The network’s other highlights included Home And Away with 620,000, Motorbike Cops with 562,000, The Chase with 552,000, Highway Patrol with 501,000 and 9-1-1 with 464,000.

The Bachie and Playing For Keeps aside, Ten did well with The Project (531,000) and Eyewitness News (375,000), while Pointless (253,000) can’t find too many fans.
Over at the ABC, both Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell (684,000) and Hard Quiz (672,000) toppled its 7pm news bulletin (665,000). 7.30 (555,000) and Back In Very Small Business (349,000) proving Aunty’s other highlights.
For SBS, it was once again trains doing the business. A repeat of Great British Railway Journeys chugging along to 248,000.
