No MKR makes a real difference – all viewing figures down and spread a little more across all FTA networks. The Block Triple Threat (1st – 1,114,000) wins the night with its bathroom reveals, well ahead of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here (Show: 13th – 660,000; Eviction: 9th – 756,000). Moving Australia: The Story of Us (5th – 945,000) back to a more reasonable 8pm start helped it somewhat – it beat 60 Minutes (7th – 830,000) and even its lead-in My France With Manu (6th – 841,000). Downton Abbey (8th – 772,000) S05 premiered and wins its timeslot and people still watched – maybe the target demo aren’t torrenting it (or buying the DVD box set as it’s now already available)? Shark Tank (10th – 739,000) also consistent for Ten.

The Real Housewives of Melbourne (120,000) premiered its second season in 4th place overall, thanks to the World Cup Cricket.

Timeslot winners (nationally):
6:00pm: Nine News – Ch9
7:00pm: The Block Triple Threat – Ch9
7:30pm: The Block Triple Threat/60 Minutes – Ch9
8:30pm: Australia: The Story of Us/Downton Abbey – Ch7
9:30pm: Downton Abbey – Ch7
