A massive night for The Block All Stars (1st – 1,444,000) taking the night and boosting Ch9’s share accordingly – sliding it in ahead of Downton Abbey (2nd – 1,306,000), the latter softer than previous seasons but still going strong for Ch7. Elementary (12th – 757,000) still struggling against the competition, though the consolidated/catch-up figures continue to help it week on week. In the battle for current affairs 60 Minutes (4th – 1,179,000) triumphs this week over Sunday Night (7th – 1,110,000) but it’s still an episode to episode battle.
