Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Palmer boosts ratings for Q&A

Nine’s night overwhelmingly in the metros. The Block Glasshouse was tops in metros and nationally, and second behind The X Factor in the regions — which didn’t do well in the metros. The Block had 1.850 million national/ 1.280 million metro/ 570,000 regional viewers while The X Factor’s results episode had 1.653 million national/ 1.077 million metro/ 576,000 regional viewers. A clear win for Nine’s predictable program. It’s not that The X Factor’s number are weak — they are solid enough to encourage Seven — but because they are not up to last year’s smash hit levels, they are discouraging for Seven.

Seven’s Amazing Race had another night of  lacklustre figures — 901,000 national/ 617,000 metro/ 284,000 regional viewers. The contest between the Australian and Kiwi contestants isn’t the most riveting bit of TV. The shape of the program is known — all we are waiting for is the Underarm Bowling incident’s modern equivalent, or some overly competitive atrocity from the Kiwis in reply.

Seven’s 6pm News had a rare win in the metros over Nine, thanks to winning margins in Adelaide and Perth being larger than Nine’s winning margins in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane (normal service at the moment). In the morning, Nine’s Today slid back under 300,000 metro viewers (288,000) after starting the past couple of weeks above that level. Sunrise won easily. In the late evening Q&A jumped into the metro top 10 news programs for the first time in months, thanks to the program again booking Clive Palmer. He duly repaid the program by mouthing off against China and Chinese, and giving Q&A a lot of free publicity this morning. It had 927,000 national/ 638,000 metro/ 289,000 regional viewers.
