Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a one-show night

My Kitchen Rules again monstered the rest of the line ups on other nights (with 2.127 million national viewers and almost 1.5 million metro), leaving Seven with another big win. Ten had another solid night (especially compared to its abject slide a year ago). The ABC’s much trumpeted drama, Hiding, managed 327,000 metro viewers  (520,000 […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: MKR dominates

My Kitchen Rules ruled again last night with just on 2.2 million viewers. Seven’s Winter developed a bit of a chill in so far as viewers are concerned — their hands seemed frozen on other channels from 9pm, or they went to bed judging by the 150,000 drop in the national audience to 1.149 million. It still […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: ABC news outrates Seven news

Another night dominated by My Kitchen Rules — end of story. Boring, I know, but Seven’s juggernaut continues to devour its opposition with 2.1 million national viewers last night. But Seven’s highly promoted How To Get Away With Murder continues to sink as Australian TV viewers give another solid US import the big thumbs down. How To […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Seven wins again

It was baaaackkk … My Kitchen Rules, that is, was back in the Seven line up last night. As a result ratings for Nine’s The Block (1.153 million national viewers) and Ten’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here (824,000 national viewers) returned to their disappointingly low levels after their holiday boosts on Sunday […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Seven cuts Nine and Ten a break

Seven rested My Kitchen Rules last night (and again next Sunday night, according to the early guides) and the mice played, with The Block and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, plus Shark Tank all doing better than on previous Sunday nights.

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a weak night for everything but MKR

Monster Kitchen Rules won it for Seven with more than 2 million national viewers and over 1.3 million metro viewers. And that was the night. Fans of Katherine Heigl (not me!) didn’t show up to support the debut episode of State of Affairs on Seven last night. It had 932,000 national viewers, which is just […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: no luck for Nine

The night of the Cooking Monster (AKA My Kitchen Rules) which had a huge 2.447 million national viewers — over 1.7 million metro and over 700,000 regional viewers. It completely squashed the opposition, helped by another solid night for the excellent Winter on Seven which had 1.3 million national viewers. So Seven won the metros and the […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: no hope for MKR rivals

One program ruled last night, again, OK!  My Kitchen Rules  — 2.444 million viewers across the country including more than 1.7 million in the metros. As a result, Seven wins and wins easily. That meant Nine’s The Block struggled, as did Ten’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, which also found it tough going. Almost […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: a nasty shock for Nine

A big win for Seven as it experienced the same level of shock this morning as Seven did yesterday. Seven was very surprised to see the way the audience, especially in metro markets, failed to support their expensive Australia: the Story of US. This morning Nine will be shattered to see that viewers deserted Gallipoli […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: not even Gina can knock MKR off its perch

Nine’s night in the metros, Seven’s in the regions, as House of Hancock’s audience jumped thanks to all that free publicity from Gina Rinehart’s last minute attempt to block it in in the NSW Supreme Court on Friday which ended up in a confidential agreement, a disclaimer and undisclosed changes to what went to air. The portrayal […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Gogglebox a flop, MKR still a monster

Seven’s night again in metro and regional markets as the monster that is My Kitchen Rules rolled across the opposition once again. End of night. My Kitchen Rules had 2.083 million viewers nationally and 1.490 million metro viewers, and a further 594,000 in the regionals. Ten had a better night — third in the metros in total […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: no room for MKR competitors

The monster (AKA My Kitchen Rules, 2.374 million national viewers, 1.632 million metro, 742,000 regional viewers) rolled over the opposition last night, again. So it’s no wonder Seven won the night in metro and regional areas, plus the demos, and there’s more of the same tonight. The ABC beat Ten into third in metro and […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: MKR crushes the competition

The My Kitchen Rules monster roles onwards and last night rolled over The Block and its triple threaters, the Celebrities struggling to free themselves from channel 10 and the ABC and SBS programming for good measure. My Kitchen Rules had more than 2.47 million national and over 1.7 million metro viewers, and almost 750,000 in the […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: MKR continues to dominate

Seven won the night in total people and the main channels in metro and regional markets, thanks to the utter domination of My Kitchen Rules. Ten was beaten into fourth spot again. It’s a replay of 2014. Seven also won all the major demos thanks to My Kitchen Rules, which is again proving that it […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: the 2014 ratings season begins

Ratings officially started last night but in reality, the fight has been going on over the past two weeks. I bet Seven, Nine and Ten weren’t charging (lower) summer ad rates for last week’s episodes of The Block, My Kitchen Rules and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here were they? In metro markets, Nine won Total […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Ten and Nine reap the rewards of Seven’s programming decisions

No My Kitchen Rules on Seven last night and The Block and I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here had nice pops in audiences. Nine boasted how The Block did well — which it did — without My Kitchen Rules on Seven.  Despite the absence of My Kitchen Rules,  I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here couldn’t […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: viewers abandon reality TV

Now for the good news: Australian TV drama is alive and well in the commercial networks (it’s always been ticking away on the ABC). Next week we see Nine’s first offerings of 2015 with the Gina Rinehart telemovie House of Hancock and the ballyhooed Gallipoli mini series (Although for me the Peter Weir movie, Gallipoli […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a triple threat for all

The Block  — down, I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here  — down, My Kitchen Rules  — solid, but within sight of the 2 million national audience. Down around 230,000 from its 2015 debut audience on Monday night which was off around 5% from a year ago. The question is whether it settles around this level, or dips under 2 […]

First blood in the 2015 ratings struggle to Seven with My Kitchen Rules, helped by the returning Home and Away (with a small assist from 7.30 and Australian Story on ABC) inflicted severe damage on the ratings of The Block and its triple threat on Nine and Ten’s much (self) touted, I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a trashy start to the ratings season

Ten’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here —  so far as I am concerned, I’m a TV viewer, get ME out of this one (click with the remote). I had to watch the first episode to see how it went — I only lasted just over half an hour (I returned several times between 7 and 8pm). According to […]
