An easy win for Nine, it’s best Sunday share since July and 4 clear of Seven that dropped below 30% for the first time on a Sunday in 10 weeks. 10 was up almost 4 points from the previous week while ABC’s share it’s best for 5 weeks. SBS was steady.

Nine won the east coast with Seven narrowly ahead in Adelaide and winning Perth easily.

The Block recorded its highest audience of the year and only the second time over one million. The Masked Singer also hit a season high with the reveal portion of the program. Seven’s news special averaged 689,000.

Later, 60 Minutes was down slightly week-on-week while 10’s YTT special averaged close to half a million.

ABC’s Fires premiere disappointed with 354,000. That compares to the 522,000 for the debut of Newsreader. It was lower than any episode of Newsreader.

Young Talent Time Unmasked rated higher than expected, getting more viewers than the likes of FBI and FBI: Most Wanted in the post-8.30pm timeslot.

The Newsreader has had massive catch up figures, and I expect Fires will do similar though maybe not to the same extent.

Subject matter will still be too raw I reckon for a large number

I was making a comparison to other dramas ABC has shown on Sundays this year as most dramas can expect a big increase in catch up audiences. By comparison Newsreader started with 522,000 Jack Irish 521,000 and Harrow 478,000. So Fires is starting off a fairly low base.

I agree and probably not the best time to be showing a disaster drama series, in the middle of a pandemic.

Seven News Melbourne should have really won last night considering it’s exclusive coverage around the footy.

Interesting that Nine is faring better nationally for the 5:00pm news…

As much as this is true, the lead-ins for the respective 6:00pm news programs don’t help Seven. There will be more eyes on a local tourism program (Postcards), compared to repeats of a show which originally aired years ago (Border Security). Also consider that Seven have changed their presenting roster now that the AFL is done - Mike Amor might not fare as well as Alicia Loxley as time has told.

While I suppose the ratings weren’t too bad for a post-Masked Singer show, you can’t help but wonder how YTT: Unmasked may have rated if screened at 7pm/7.30pm at the end of the ratings season after Masked Singer and all the other reality tentpoles had wrapped up for the year.

Surely The Block only got over 1 million viewers due to being “the least worst option” compared to what Seven & Ten were offering? The sooner that either network can come up with a “Block killing” program for the entire 3rd/4th quarter of the year, the better.

Given the subject matter it was probably too soon for the ABC to commission/air Fires. Probably would’ve been better to wait 5-10 years.

When the footy ends Alicia, looking at last year, is anywhere from 50-120k ahead.

We now go into weekends where Alicia pulls 400k and Mike/Mitch 280k. (Trends last few years)

They really need to address the 530pm slot. I really do find it quite bizarre they don’t seem interested in addressing it. Travel shows don’t cost a bomb, Postcards doesn’t exactly have dozens of staff.

I think the topic of fires isn’t as interesting as others to want to tune in. I did watch a few episodes of a US fire show, and that kind of got repetitive.

@TV.Cynic Any idea how Inside Central Station is rating? I’ve become somewhat obsessed with the show having spent a good chunk of my life commuting on Sydney trains. It should’ve been called Inside the Sydney Rail Network considering they look much further afield than Central.

Last night’s look at a young woman learning to become a train driver was fascinating. The insight into how they approach various platforms and hazards was fascinating as was how closely they monitor station platforms. Really feel for the staff who have to deal with horrible situations like suicides on the network. Can’t believe there’s still another seven episodes to come.

Why do you want The Block to be killed off? Unlike say, Married at First Sight, The Block is a program that is beneficial to Australia. Not only because of all the jobs behind the scenes (producers etc) but for both the retail and real estate industry.

All the shopping the contestants do and the deals the show has with numerous companies. That’s a lot of injection into the industry.

And real estate too. I’m sure the show provides a massive help to that industry too. Especially in Melbourne with the auction at the end of the series and also exposure for local Melbourne real estate agents and their services.

If you don’t like the show, just don’t watch it. We should be celebrating and supporting Australian made content, even if some areas of the show are questionable.

I commented on last Sunday’s numbers where the overnight was 185,000. The previous week it had 243,000. Last night it was slightly down on the previous week. It picks up some good 7-day consolidated numbers.

Unlikeable contestants/hosts, shameless attempts to win viewers with completely manufactured events (such as the “cheating scandal” during this year’s season) and product placement which is rammed down viewers throats every five seconds. All of those seem like pretty good reasons to no longer want The Block on television IMO.

Sorry, but we need to stop using “don’t like it, don’t watch it” as an argument/excuse to defend every program on television, no matter how dubious.

There’s a difference between say, niche programs on multichannels like ABC Kids/ME, SBS VICELAND & NITV (content which generally isn’t on my viewing radar, but at the same time I don’t particularly advocate the axing of) and completely mindless “reality” TV such as The Block!

MAFS also creates plenty of jobs for the crew, hotel staff, hospitality, psychologists, marriage counsellors…

Fair enough. Very true. Probably wasn’t the best example but my point still stands. These shows, regardless of whether you like them or not, are doing good things for Australian workers.
