The Block (1st – 1,529,000) again tops Sunday night, and while some cry the format is past it’s use-by date people continue to tune in. Nine News (2nd – 1,385,000) just pips Seven News (3rd – 1,382,000) for the important Sunday night win, and somehow Billy Connolly’s Route 66 Sneak Peek (5th – 1,336,000) is slated as it’s own show and outrates everything else Ch7 have to offer short of Downton Abbey (4th – 1,345,000). MasterChef Australia (6th – 1,132,000) again strong enough to win the 7:30pm slot while Dancing With The Stars (8th – 1,120,000) comes 2nd & 3rd in it’s respective timeslots and doesn’t bode well for it’s finale ratings chances against The Voice Australia next week. Mabo (12th – 544,000) was excellent but not covered by enough eyes.
