Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a lacklustre night all round

The mid-week programming slump has well and truly hit the major commercial networks.

Seven’s night in a lacklustre exhibition of TV. Seven won metro markets and the main channels, but Nine won the regionals overall.

House Rules (2.249 million national/ 1.402 million metro/ 867,000 regional viewers) dominated, But Nine’s fresh (1.999 million national viewers) and repeat episodes (1.751 million national viewers) of The Big Bang Theory helping it keep in touch. Ten was a solid third and the ABC a weak fourth (back to pre-2012 levels). The Beatles visit 50 year doco had 829,000 national/ 607,000 metro/ 232,000 regional viewers. Not nearly as many as the Abba visit doco from last year (which had 942,000 metro and 1.4 million national viewers)

Nine News again asserted its 6pm dominance on the east coast with wins in Sydney by 79,000 viewers, with 91,000 in Melbourne and 30,000 in Brisbane.
