An expanded The Bolt Report (152,000 nationally for the 10am first broadcast) returned to Ten, with a repeat at 4pm. ABC1’s Insiders (444,000 on ABC 1 and News 24) and Offsiders (220,000) and Nine’s Financial Review Sunday (241,000) all had more viewers nationally and in metro and regional markets.

A close night last night, won narrowly by Seven in metro markets and a bigger margin in the regions. Nine’s The Block had its biggest audience so far  (2.156 million nationally/ 1.504 million metro/ 652,000 regional viewers), and was second behind My Kitchen Rules with 2.471 million nationally/ 1.624 million metro/ 847,000 regional viewers. The Block’s momentum continues to build.
