THE BLOCK NZ: GIRLS VS BOYS FINAL A HUGE RATINGS SUCCESS
Last night’s nail-biting The Block NZ: Girls vs Boys season finale saw TV3 win Sunday night across all four key demographics (18-39, 18-49, 25-54 and Household Shoppers with Kids 0-14), with a 13 rating and 37.4 share in TV3’s key target demographic of 25-54. The episode also built from last year’s The Block NZ: Villa Wars finale by 1.5 share (from 35.9 to 37.4).
Adding to TV3’s Sunday night success was the Westside Season 2 finale, which won its timeslot across all four key demographics (18-39, 18-49, 25-54 and HHS with kids 0-14), attracting a 7.0 rating and a 21.7 share in the 25-54 demographic.
This weekend also saw TV3 enjoy another successful Friday night of comedy, with local favourites 7 Days and Fail Army winning their timeslots across all four key demos (18-39, 18-49, 25-54 and HHS with kids 0-14). 7 Days achieved a 7.8 rating 29.1 share, and Fail Army a 4.2 rating 17.6 share (both in the 25-54 demographics).
Earlier in the week proved equally as successful for TV3, with Thursday night’s return of the hit local series Lost and Found winning its key target demographic of 25-54, with a 6.0 rating 19.6 share. While the US action drama Hawaii Five-0 continued its great performance on Wednesday night with a win in the 25-54 demographic, attracting a 4.1 rating and 19.3% share.
Last night also saw The Block NZ’s Mark Richardson and host of Grand Designs NZ, Chris Moller, tease the return of Grand Designs Season 2 with a “mash-up” promo which screened during The Block NZ’s Live Auction. While Kiwis eagerly await the return of the local version of the popular UK format, Grand Designs NZ Season 1 (which premiered on TV3 in September last year) has recently been sold into six territories including Australia and the UK.
