A big first Sunday night for The Block, beating a returning Sunday Night (though the Ch7 long-form current affairs show beat 60 Minutes comparably). Grand Designs delivered strongly for ABC1, and the season final of Downton Abbey helped Channel 7 to a huge win. It was, however, a MasterChef Australia night again – with a massive 1.725 million people tuning in to see the contestants cook for the Dalai Lama.

A strong push by Channel 10 (20%), however Channel 7 (25.1%) beat out Channel 9 (21%) for the win.
A massive start to the week for the primary channels meant the digital multi-channels had to work hard for their shares, and GO! delivered with it’s mix of near-new sitcoms. Not enough to help though, as the 7 Network won the first night of the week.
