Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: no worthy competition for Seven

My Kitchen Rules and Spicks and Specks were the only shows worth watching last night.

Thanks for Seven and the ABC at least trying last night. My Kitchen Rules had another very solid night (Nine ran dead, again). That meant Seven won handsomely in metro and regional markets, with Nine a light year or two away in second spot, with the ABC again trumping Ten for third slot.

My Kitchen Rules had 2.901 million national/ 1.961 million metro/ 940,000 regional viewers and that was the night. ABC1’s Spicks and Specks had probably its most entertaining episode with the new look and cast last night, thanks to guests Martha Davis (of The Motels and “Total Control” fame) and Teddy Tahu Rhodes (great baritone).

And we must be in a housing boom. The LifeStyle Channel program on Wednesday nights, Selling Houses Australia has seen its audience rise from 142,000 on April 9 to 190,000 last Wednesday and 206,000 last night.
