Seven won metro and regional markets overall, but again lost the important main channels where most of the advertising money is spent. Ten finished third in the metros, but fourth in the regions as the ABC’s offerings proved more popular than The Bachelor and Wonderland.

The Block Glasshouse couldn’t make top spot in either metro or national markets for Nine — an indication of how boring the episode was for many marginal viewers. It still did well, but not quite as well as earlier in the week. The Block Glasshouse had 1.556 million national viewers, 1.066 million metro and a solid 491,000 people watched in the regions.

    600K plus viewers is OK. The show is as cheap as chips to make and fills the schedule and keeps the ABC viewers happy.

    I’d reckon that is a better than OK result given the numbers for Utopia which is reaching a bigger than just ABC audience. Tag it in with the Checkout and The Roast and these should result in some serious commercial/politacal clout for ABC if they get the cross promotion right
