Back to school -- well, back to life without football (and how many months/days/hours to the NRL and AFL seasons start in 2018?). And last night it meant the last room reveal for The Block and Nine winning yet another week. More than 2 million people watched The Block across the country (and over 1.4 million in the metros). The ABC had a solid enough night to push Ten back to fourth. Australian Survivor could only manage 798,000 national viewers -- Have You Been Paying Attention was watched by 929,000. Once again Ten fans vote with their remotes.

In regional markets The Block also topped the night with 670,000 viewers, with Seven News next with 612,000, then Seven News/Today Tonight with 488,000, Home and Away was fourth with 434,000 and A Current Affair fifth with 392,000.
