Ten’s finale of The Renovators went out on top last night as the second part of the episode where the winner was announced, airing from 9:05 to 9:36, was the most watched show of the night with 1.264 million.   

The Auction Night part of the program, which ran from 7:33 to 9:05, had an audience of 1.122 million, according to preliminary metro ratings from OzTam. Both parts of the show won their time slots.
