The Block scores on a night 10 chose not to compete

With the success of Seven’s talent quest, 10 opted not to screen The Masked Singer last night but its substitute programming was all but ignored by viewers.

Once again room reveals gave The Block a win topping entertainment and the demos at 786,000 metro viewers.

That was well ahead of The Voice on 653,000 then ABC’s Death in Paradise repeat (339,000) while 10’s decision not to compete blew it out of contention.
