The Block Glasshouse delivered the Nine Network yet another ratings win, although the network’s reality show Big Brother slipped out of of top 10.

A documentary about the death of rock star Michael Hutchence has outrated the snogging and sooking housemates on Big Brother.

Seven Network documentary The Last Days Of Michael Hutchence, which reviewed the coroner’s finding into the rock’s star’s 1997 death, was the 10th most watched show on Sunday.

According to OzTAM’s overnight figures, the program attracted 690,000 viewers and won its timeslot.

It was up against Nine Network’s reality series Big Brother, which was 12th with 645,000 viewers.

It’s the first time since Big Brother launched last Monday the reality series has failed to make the top 10 when telecast simultaneously across Australia.

Big Brother finished well down in the ratings on Friday, but it did not screen in Brisbane and Sydney because of Nine’s NRL finals coverage.

The human social experiment returns to live shows on Monday and Tuesday, when it will follow rating powerhouse The Block Glasshouse.

The renovation series won Sunday’s ratings with 1.695 million viewers, followed by Nine News (1.368 million) and Seven News (1.310 million).

Seven reality singing series The X Factor was fourth, with an audience of 1.202 million viewers.
