While My Kitchen Rules (1st – 1,373,000) leads The Block Open House (9th – 664,000) and I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here (11th – 608,000) maintain their distant second/third place. State of Affairs (13th – 566,000) premieres but drops 800,000 viewers from its lead in, though still beats Inside Story (16th – 517,000) and Gogglebox (20th – 438,000). Hiding (TBA) becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy for the ABC when it comes to ratings.
