The Block & Formula 1 Take the Lead on Overnight TV Ratings — 23 Sept 2019


A look at the latest ratings results and what they mean for the networks – as well as a glimpse at how well your favourite shows are doing!

The Block Overtakes Australia’s Got Talent Grand Final for Sunday Evening TV Ratings

Ever since the premiere of its 15th season on Nine, The Block has consistently topped the charts on the free to air overnight ratings. It’s no surprise that it’s recognised as Australia’s most successful reality program!

Sundays have been proven to be a winning airtime for The Block, having hit the million mark four consecutive Sundays in a row this time. Last night, the show reached 1,155,000 viewership, which sees a slight dip from last Sunday’s 1,395,000 but still more than enough to give the hit reality show the lead ahead of Sunday news shows, as well as the long awaited Grand Final episode of Australia’s Got Talent on Seven that only saw 752,000 viewers tuning in.

The Block is well positioned for another great run with high ratings that are placing them ahead of the ratings competition. Suffice it to say, this spells out another big win for Nine, especially following the success of The Voice Australia and Australian Ninja Warrior, which have previously aired and wrapped up new seasons this year.

Singapore F1 Grand Prix Races to the Top Ahead of Rugby World Cup Coverage

The Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix is one of the biggest and most tuned in races on the Formula 1 championship circuit, so it doesn’t come much of a surprise that it took the lead for last night’s subscription TV ratings with 162,000. Despite taking the lead, the F1 race was closely followed by the Rugby World Cup coverage of the matches between Ireland and Scotland with 141,000, as well as England and Tonga with 125,000.
