As the final weeks are upon us this is when The Block Sky High (1st – 1,446,000) traditionally succeeds as all the excitement of an impending auction builds (also with the renovating almost over there’s usually less fights). The Great Australian Bake Off (5th – 1,119,000) premieres to solid figures and a win in its timeslot; Under The Dome (7th – 1,015,000) bounces back up helping Ten be more competitive than it has been in some time. Winners and Losers (11th – 798,000) premieres down on past two season openers. The Mole (20th – 555,000) almost nowhere to be seen.
