TV Ratings September 11: Nine wins third consecutive night

Mediaweek deputy editor Kruti Joshi rounds up last nights TV ratings.

• Nine wins third consecutive night in week 37
• The Block and Australian Survivor the most-watched non-news shows
• Seven’s Take Me Out attracts 504,000, #4 in 16-39 demo


The broadcaster has won three out of three nights in week 37 so far. It recorded a primary share of 22.1% on Tuesday.

Sparks were flying on last night’s episode of The Block with the episode now completely focusing on the kitchen area. Hans and Courtney were in a bit of a budget dilemma. The pilot and airhostess couple only have $61,000 remaining to renovate the rest of their apartment.

The episode had 987,000 people watching. A new episode of True Story with Hamish and Andy followed on 640,000 and 508,000 stayed on to watch a repeat episode of the show.


The news was the channel’s best performer on 937,000. Home and Away was Seven’s only other entry in the top 10 with 642,000.

The Chase Australia ranked #11 with 575,000. Take Me Out, hosted by Joel Creasey, did 504,000. The show was the fourth-most-watched show in the 16-39 demo.


Australian Survivor was the channel’s best with 664,000 watching. It was also the second-most-watched show in all demos, following The Block.

The talking points on last night’s episode of The Project included the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s tour down under and cartoonist Mark Knight’s depiction of Serena Williams’s outburst at the US Open (see below).

Australian TV and radio presenter Steve Vizard was the special guest on the show, which was watched by 500,000


The News and 7.30 were the channel’s most-watched shows on 709,000 and 556,000.

Foreign Correspondent did 437,000.
