Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Offspring the outright winner

Seven’s night in metro and regional markets. The finale of Offspring on Ten stood out. The third episode of The Bachelor didn’t stand out, even though its audience snuck up on the debut a week ago — 712,000 metro viewers v 692,000.  Its national audience rose to 916,000 from 888,000 with regional audience rising to 205,000 from 195,000. The Block Glasshouse had 1.618 million national/ 1.090 million metro/ 528,000 regional viewers (the biggest regional audience and number 2 nationally and number 3 in metros).

Offspring ended with 1.329 million national/ 992,000 metro/ 337,000 regional viewers. The success of this program is not only down to the cast and producers, but also the original decision by Ten management back in 2010 to commission it. That’s not the management associated with Lachlan Murdoch, James Packer, and Gina  Rinehart’s presence on the share register and management, but well before their clumsy and destructive entry into the network’s affairs.

In the mornings, Nine’s Today fell below 300,000 metro viewers, again, after its one time rise to 333,000 on Tuesday. Sunrise eased to 363,000 from 389,000. At 6pm, Seven’s woes continued, especially in Sydney where it lost the news battle to Nine by 130,000. Nine won Melbourne by 87,000 and Brisbane by 49,000.
