Ratings Wars: House Rules vs The Block

House Rules’ Chester Drife

The end of dominant reality show The Voice has begun to take effect on other channel 9 shows with viewers quickly moving onto other networks and other rival shows.

For the first time since launch, Channel 7’s House Rules beat out channel 9’s The Block with 1.159 million viewers tuning into 7’s house renovating show, beating out The Blocks 1.130 million.

The slow start for House Rules is now a distant memory for the 7 network with the show now constantly rating extremely well.  Some viewers have stated the overt-drama and outright nastiness between competing couples is what have turned them off this season of The Block.

Also suffering for Channel 9 is Celebrity Apprentice.  Last night’s challenge episode didn’t even make the top 20 in ratings while the boardroom showdown only managed just shy of 600,000 viewers.
