Not as good for Ch9’s earlier programming, but still good come 7pm. Both The Block (3rd – 1,308,000) and The Voice Australia (1st – 2,372,000) ripped it in, tearing their competition a new one. As The Voice ran 30 minutes overtime The Big Bang Theory (2nd – 1,506,000) was actually the last half hour of The Block, and Two Broke Girls (12th – 881,000) was actually Big Bang Theory. By comparison Australia’s Got Talent (9th – 980,000) rated OK but nothing like Ch7 would have expected it too, and The Biggest Loser Australia (13th – 761,000) is now getting lost in the noise where before it was making some good ratings inroads. What a waste of their big European challenges week! Over on the digital multi-channels Neighbours won the night but hasn’t broken 300,000 in a long time.
