The launch of Channel Seven’s new renovation pressure reality show, House Rules, was beaten by Channel Nine’s perennial favourite The Block Sky High, according to ratings from OzTAM.

The Block Sky High was the second highest rating show on Tuesday night with 1.308 million viewers across the city metro areas as its ratings continue to perform well.

The House Rules launch rated 11th nationally, with 803,000 viewers.

Perth was the only market where House Rules rated higher than The Block Sky High. House Rules was the 4th most watched show in Perth – presumably as it featured a 1950s three-bedroom house in Perth.

House Rules performed the weakest in Sydney, coming in at 19th. The Block Sky High ranked 4th most popular show in Sydney.

House Rules is a state-versus-state renovation series from the makers of My Kitchen Rules and aims to deliver true home renovations.

The contestant couples (pictured below) have put their entire home on the line promising an emotional return to their new homes after the seven-day renovation.

On its second outing, on Monday, The Block Sky High maintained its momentum with an audience of 1.281m only just down on Sunday night’s 1.312m debut.

As House Rules airs at 7.30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, it will go head to head again tonight and tomorrow night for 30 minutes given the The Block Sky High airs weeknights at 7pm for an hour.
