It sure is still strong but I did put ‘gradually’. Compared to Married at First Sight, The Block is more likely to weaken if new competition goes up against it (and before anyone says anything, I think Takeaway, Dancing and Ambulance are way better shows than Game of Games or Blind Date).
While The Block is doing great I think it has already started to weaken against some competition, particularly against The Bachelor (although, it could’ve been because of the buzz surrounding Nick Cummins last year more than anything else). Either way I think around that time and later would be a better timeslot than being obliterated by the growing Married at First Sight.
I would agree if you put Beau Ryan’s segments into that category. He just seems like an outlier compared to the rest of the show.
