Seven won total people in the metros, Nine won it in the regions. Nine and Seven drew the main channels in the metros, Nine won it in the regions. Nine had better demos because of The Block.

60 Minutes profiled Roxy Jacenko (who, I hear you ask outside Sydney?). She is a Sydney PR queen married to a man called Oliver Curtis who has appealed his conviction for insider trading. She is a publicity hound and was profiled for that as much as anything. Who cares? It was not a 60 Minutes story and was driven more by Jacenko’s social media postings and pictures than anything of substance. 60 Minutes had 1.348 million national viewers after The Block which had 1.581 million. Good for a starter.

Australian Survivor: Ten will be sort of happy, but looks like I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here without the celebs (the host is best known). Averaged 1.048 million national viewers, which is OK. The Block: Solid opening, but same old same old. But let’s give them a week to settle down and see if they convince or offend viewers. And Tour of Spain is underway, so the odd late night, again.

Seven starts its post games blitz tonight with a plane crash on Home and Away (a bit far from the sand and surf of Summer Bay?), and then its desert time with Mr Crocqeumbouche, Sydney chef, Adriano Zumbo.
