Returning: The Block

Nine has confirmed The Block will be returning for its 12th series on Monday, August 22nd.

Launching as the Olympics end, Nine is branding the series as “The New Block” (although it still has the same presenters and format).

The Port Melbourne site is however, the biggest footprint the series has ever featured and will see six apartments renovated by 5 teams. Following the failure of Reno Rumble, Nine is relying on the series to underpin its fourth quarter programming.

Simon Baird, Programming Executive, says: “The Block is Australia’s most loved renovation reality show and this series is bigger and better than ever. Audiences old and new will enjoy watching each couple go through the ups and downs of renovating and rebuilding this iconic building.”

Five new teams of renovators from various generations will be leaving their old lives behind for the challenge of a lifetime.

The latest series promises to be one of grand-scale proportions as these couples renovate the derelict headquarters of a historic Australian soap and candle factory.

Each of the five couples will be tasked with restoring The Block to its former glory, along with turning their own space into a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom luxury apartment, complete with an expansive outdoor terrace and city views.

In a baptism of fire, the new couples on The Block test their renovation skills in the first 48 hours with a challenge that almost breaks them. The winners of this challenge are rewarded with first pick of which level and space they wish to renovate.


7:30pm Monday August 22nd on Nine.

Nine bumps The Block to Sunday premiere against Australian Survivor

How nervous is Nine? Very.

It has just cancelled its plans for The Block to premiere on Monday August 22 (which it announced a week ago), to now premiere a night earlier on Sunday August 21.

Instead of launching head to head with Zumbo’s Just Desserts, it will now go up against TEN’s high-profile launch of Australian Survivor.

Nine also gets the jump on TEN with a 7pm premiere for The Block, an extra 30 minutes ahead of Australian Survivor.

The three-way battle for reality shows post-Olympics will underpin all three networks in the final quarter of the ratings year and after an underwhelming year for Nine, much is riding on the next round.

According to a site poll, TV Tonight readers are pumped for the untested Australian Survivor with Seven’s new Zumbo’s Just Desserts in second place.

This will be a game of outwit, outplay and outlast…
