Nine scores massive 47.5% share for The Block finale

Nine pulled out a whopping, drama-filled finale for its auction of Charming St homes last night, amassing a huge 47.5% Sunday share.

In preliminary numbers The Block averaged 1.27m metro viewers for its finale, but rose to 1.59m for the moment Steph & Gian were named as winners.

Those numbers need to be adjusted for the overrun, and were down on previous seasons, but will doubtless top 2m once Total TV is calculated.

The 1% Club held up rather well considering, at 526,000, then Joanna Lumley’s Spice Trail Adventure (389,000), Border Security (326,000) and The Graham Norton Show at just 147,000.

Later 60 Minutes led with 758,000 in preliminary numbers then Annika (377,000), then Homicide with Ron Iddles (245,000).

Nine network dominated with a 47.5% share crushing Seven 22.3%, ABC 14.5%, 10 9.4% and SBS 6.3%.

Nine News was 784,000 with a late edition at 417,000 in preliminary.

Seven News still claimed its slot at 810,000. Air Crash Investigations was 141,000.

ABC News drew 484,000. Shetland drew 275,000 and Antiques Roadshow was 151,000.

10 News First managed 218,000 / 201,000 with The Sunday Project (187,000 / 166,000), then FBI just 82,000 and NCIS: Hawaii at 68,000.

On SBS it was SBS World News (117,000 / 89,000), Kennedy, Sinatra & the Mafia (96,000), Treasures Of India With Bettany Hughes only 72,000.

ICC Men’s ODI World Cup led multichannels at 145,000.

In Total TV numbers last Sunday were:

Annika: 876,000
Shetland: 314,000
The Block: 1.75m
60 Minutes: 767,000
The Graham Norton Show: 216,000
Insiders: 504,000
Under Investigation: 220,000
