Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: meat markets all round

With the NRL game on Nine last night between Souths and Brisbane (won by the Broncos, a News Corp side), Nine won the metros and the regions. And that was the end of the story. A most disappointing night as the networks gird their loins for the big September push to try and win a […]

Nine writes down Sky

 Poor David Gyngell. Last year, he made $19.59 million, boosted by just on $10 million of shares and other benefits (including a big fat cash bonus) as part of the float arrangements. This year, he’s down to $4.48 million — a flat $2 million a year and other short and long-term incentive payments. The $19.5 million made him […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: depressing reality

More of the same: Nine won the metros last night from Seven, Ten and the ABC, but in the regions it was Seven, Nine, the ABC and Ten. And nothing stood out at all. The Bachelor on Ten kept us amused with a confected storm out, so nothing to trouble viewers there (and 1.2 million […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: all these channels and nothing but cats

Nine won the metros closely, Seven won the regionals convincingly. Ten was third (narrowly in the regions) and the ABC was fourth. Nothing stood out except one program on 7TWO (that’s my view). That was the repeat of Foyle’s War (370,000 national viewers) on Seven’s 7TWO channel last night (it was on the ABC a decade […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a night for current affairs junkies

A usual Monday night with the ABC’s strong news and current affairs line up doing well, Ten struggling, Nine doing OK (led by the News and ACA) and Seven running hard to stay in line. And that was the metros. In the regions, Seven was an easy winner, from Nine, the ABC and Ten. The […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: an easy win for The Voice

An easy win for Nine thanks to The Voice and the 6pm News. It won the metros with daylight second and then Seven.  Nine had a closer, but still clear win in the regionals. Ten was behind the ABC again in both the metro and regional markets as the first fresh episode of Vera  (which […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: more disappointment

The test cricket and NRL football on Nine (Gem and Nine’s main channel) did the number for Nine last night in metro and regional markets. And that was that  Seven’s Restaurant Revolution  — 457,000 national viewers, beaten by Lewis on 7TWO — 579,000 national viewers. They went head to head last night and the import won because it was interesting, entertaining and well-acted […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a so-so night

Ten’s The Bachelor stood out last night in that it was the most watched non-news program in the metros. But that’s all you can say. While it helped Ten snaffle a nice set of demo viewers (young women) it did nothing for Ten’s overall performance and it again finished fourth in the metros and regionals […]

First it was Cats Making Us Laugh Out Loud last Tuesday night, then last night it was the turn of the doggies to make us chuckle (and watch); next Tuesday it’s Pets Make Us Laugh Out Loud. Seven is returning to the well of pet vids that giveth and giveth to try and repair the […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: ABC wins on quality

Nine’s night in the metros because of wins in Sydney and Melbourne and a shared victory in Brisbane. Seven shared Brisbane and won Adelaide and Perth. In the regionals, Seven was an easy winner. Ten was fourth in both metros and regionals behind the ABC with its usually strong line up of news and current […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: all sport, all the time

A quiet night of TV last night with The Voice the only standout, with the action this morning as Jason Day won the US PGA title. And yesterday the Australian netball Diamonds shone brightly and won another a third world title, and on Friday the Australian women’s cricket team thrashed England in the Ashes Test. […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: flops all round

Did anyone see Restaurant Revolution pass us by on Seven last night? I didn’t, I watched the fresh Lewis on 7TWO and the NRL game on Nine and was entertained. But 507,000 hardy souls did watch Restaurant Revolution,  312,000 in the metros and 195,000 in the regions. A total of 641,000 watched the NRL game on […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a night of nothing special

Seven won a very narrow night in the metros, and it had a much bigger win in the regionals (which was expected). Ten’s The Bachelor did well in the metros with 922,000 viewers, but badly in the regions with 274,000 viewers, but it still grab a lion’s share of the younger viewers. Nothing else mattered. […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: nothing but cats

Cats, cats, cats, cats. That’s all you can read about this morning. So no cat jokes, just cat ratings. Cats Made You Laugh Out Loud also made Seven network executives cheer (and it is free Dine or Whiskas for the troops today after weeks of meetings, bowls of ratings gruel and scowls as Nine whacked Seven’s programming […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: spelling bee fails to rate

A weak night overall in TV last night. Nothing grabbed viewers and the top programs were all news and current affairs programs from Nine and Seven. Nine won the metros overall and the main channels. Seven was a weak second, the ABC a solid third, Ten a weak fourth (but ahead of 2014). In the regionals, […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: The Voice fails to inspire

Nine won the metros and the regionals last night, thanks to The Voice.  It managed 1.957 million viewers, which was short of the usual 2 million viewer mark nationally. It was a final and should have done a lot better than that. Seven struggled, but the News (1.924 million national viewers) and Sunday Night (1.470 […]
