The Block Grabs Weekend Overnight TV Ratings for Nine

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! The latest season sees five ambitious couples renovating the neglected Oslo Hotel in St Kilda for the chance to walk away with the $100,000 prize money — not to mention the profit made once the apartments go under the hammer at a public auction this year.

After hitting a one million mark with last Sunday’s viewership, The Block has slipped a bit last night down to 975,000 — a slight drop but still high enough to give the show the top spot, even going ahead of Sunday news shows, as well as other hit reality shows including Network Ten’s Australian Survivor and Seven’s Australia’s Got Talent. Despite the slight decrease in weekend viewership, The Block is still 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.
