Channel 10’s craft series Making It Australia debuts to just 474,000 viewers

Channel 10’s latest new series has failed to fire in Wednesday night’s TV ratings.

Making It Australia, a crafting competition hosted by Susie Yousseff and Harley Breen, premiered to figures of just 474,000 viewers.

The underwhelming numbers meant the new series was unable to crack the night’s top ten.

Other misses for the night included The Project at 7pm (460,000) and RFDS, with Channel 7’s big budget medical drama only attracting 417,000 viewers.  

On the other end of the rating spectrum was The Block, which has continued to grow its audience in the wake of the cheating scandal. 

The reality TV renovation show lock in number one spot on Wednesday with 810,000 sets of eyeballs.

In a trailer for Sunday’s episode of the show, accused ‘cheater’ Tanya Guccione gets into a screaming match with Ronnie and Georgia Caceres after she and husband Vito tried to completely transform one of their challenge pieces rather than just ‘tweak’ it.

Tempers flare at a group meeting as the other teams say it’s unfair the Gucciones got to redo their eyesore challenge piece: a ‘fidget planter’ made from shipwreck items. 

‘When is a tweak a tweak and when does a tweak become a transformation?’ Mitch Edwards and Mark McKie ask pointedly. 

Tanya gets defensive and tells them host Shelley Craft gave her permission to remove a piece from their planter.

‘What’s the rules? What are the rules?’ Georgia says angrily. 

As tensions escalate with Georgia, Tanya storms out of the meeting and shouts: ‘You’re not the friggen boss, dude!’ 

Tanya and Vito found themselves at the centre of The Block’s ‘biggest cheating scandal’ just weeks ago when they were caught red-handed with a leaked photo of the show’s production schedule, which gave them an unfair advantage.

Later, Tanya sensationally accused the producers of setting her up. 

She claimed the infamous whiteboard that outlined the production schedule was put in a ‘really obvious’ place that was almost impossible to ignore.

She alleged the schedule was ‘right there by the toilet… on a massive board’, which made her suspect producers had planned the cheating storyline all along.

‘Most of us came by [the schedule] because it was right by the toilet… It was right there in front of us, so I felt very singled out, like I was the only one who saw it, but plenty of others used the toilet that day,’ she told News.com.au.

‘It felt almost like it could have been set up.’

The schedule was later moved to host Scott Cam’s office, and the official version of events is that someone broke into the office and took a photo of it.

But Tanya rejected the idea she ‘snuck in like a commando’ and secretly took the photo, arguing that literally anyone on site could have done so when the whiteboard was next to the toilets. 

The Gucciones and Love Island twins Josh and Luke Packham were each docked two points for their room reveal in the wake of the scandal.
