Channel Seven’s brand new renovating reality program, Dream Home, hosted by Dr Chris Brown, has scored impressive audience numbers for its debut last night, securing a spot as the number one entertainment program for Sunday.

The show had an impressive reach of 2.25 million viewers, with a national audience of 950,000, making it the biggest new program to debut in 2024 — it was also Seven’s biggest new program launch in two years, according to the Network.

Dream Home sees six pairs of everyday Aussies battle it out room by room, to transform suburban homes into “dream homes,” transforming each other’s tired old houses into astonishing new properties.
