Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: nothing but The Block

There’s no My Kitchen Rules on Thursday nights, which meant The Block finally got an audience.

The Block did it again last night for Nine, while Seven faded with its second-tier line up. The ABC inflicted more pain on Ten, which says bring on the Games. The Block from had 1.658 million national/ 1.134 million metro/ 424,000 regional viewers and the week’s highlights package at 8pm had 1.342 million national/ 854,000 metro/ 488,000 regional viewers. Nine won the metro and regional markets and the ABC beat Ten in metro and regional areas.

A Current Affair had another weak night at 7pm — its 784,000 metro viewers meant it again ran third behind ABC News with 874,000, and Home and Away with 884,000 metro viewers .

Nine’s Today regained the 300,000 metro level yesterday morning with 306,000, but Seven’s Sunrise remained in front with 355,000. Ten’s The Project saw a good lift in its audience to 429,000 metro viewers last night after a couple of nights around 100,000 viewers or more lower.

This weekend: Brush up on your pucks, axels, triples, half pipes, moguls, downhill, stocks, gates and all the other forgettable jargon of winter sports, Ten’s Sochi experience starts tonight. Getting through the coming days of mostly meaningless commentary will need something stronger than what you keep in your Samovar. Sunday night sees the INXS telemovie on Seven,Rake on ABC 1, So You Think You Can Dance Australia on Ten (which will get squeezed, again) and Nine’s docudrama called Mayday Mayday - Terror on QF 32 on the Qantas A380 from Singapore that almost crashes several years ago. And of course the snow and ice from Sochi on Ten.
