A big simulcast launch for The Block Glasshouse (1st – 1,374,000) ensures a bit of noise for a show that was always going to win, and yet the love was spread around all the reality shows pretty evenly last night… MasterChef Australia (3rd – 1,261,000), The Voice Kids Australia (8th – 933,000) & The X Factor Australia (5th – 1,114,000) all get reasonable figures. REALITY SATURATION MUCH? Ob-doc Grand Designs () manages to pull decent figures in the midst of it as viewers scramble for some non-singing/cooking/building actual reality. Great figures for the Commonwealth Games across Ten and ONE mean the network takes out the night for the second time in a few days. We really are a fickle sport-consuming mob.
