Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: The Beast is back

A big win for Seven in metro and especially regional markets, thanks to The Beast (AKA My Kitchen Rules) and the Russell Crowe movie, The Water Diviner (which Seven helped finance and produce), which you’d have to say under-performed last night given it was on TV only three months after premiering in Australia (and in […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Anzac fatigue

A close night. Nine did slightly better than Seven in metro and regional markets and Ten and the ABC also did OK (closeish). Seven’s News was tops, boosted by having various AFL games as the lead in program in some markets — it had 2.1 million national viewers. My Kitchen Rules had 1.980 million national viewers (a […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a disappointment all round

Nine’s night in the metros, but not in the regionals where Seven was a very easy winner. That’s yet another example of the clear split between metro and regional viewers that many in TV ignore. Seven’s new line up didn’t really grab metro viewers. Home and Away did OK nationally with 1.233 million viewers , […]

Murdoch’s incendiary, red-headed ‘up yours’ to the Leveson Inquiry

It’s been an open secret for months now that Rebekah Brooks will be returning to the Murdoch stable, but does Rupert really have the gall to place her back into a senior editorial role in the UK?

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a strange night for Nine

Finally a monster of a night for Seven. Not so much for The Beast’s performance (AKA My Kitchen Rules), but for the solid performance by the fresh Criminal Minds straight after which was the third most watched program in prime time, giving Seven a very dominant win in metro and regional markets. My Kitchen Rules had […]

Five-year figures show 2012-13 was Murdoch’s annus horribilis

Five-year figures reveal the context for Crikey’s publication of leaked News Corp accounts last year — and it’s true, 2012-13 was an awful year.

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: The Block gets one over MKR

Well, The Beast (My Kitchen Rules) was muzzled somewhat last night and had to withstand a counter attack from the The Block. As a result, Seven had its closest win with My Kitchen Rules in the schedule for sometime, but Nine did very well in the major demos, and so claimed a sort of “moral” victory […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: ABC wins out

Thankfully The Checkout returned to ABC last night. Home and Away ticked over for Seven last night. If they hadn’t been in the schedule, it would have been a night more dull than it was. The telemovie of Redfern Now on ABC was also more than OK.  The Checkout’s return was appreciated by viewers: 1.077 million watched nationally […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: ABC chooses quality over quantity

Only three programs of note last night. The Beast (AKA My Kitchen Rules) won the night for Seven with 2.180 million national viewers,  assisted by a solid effort from Criminal Minds with more than 1.36 million national viewers. The other two (confused? Well, Criminal Minds was only an assist, not a standout performer) were the penultimate […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Ten fights back

A one program night again. The Beast was on the prowl and My Kitchen Rules ruled. Ten did a bit better, in fact a lot better than it did over Easter with mildly interesting programs and solid figures for the  5pm News. My Kitchen Rules had 2.116 million national viewers. The Block on Nine had 1.380 […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: the return of MKR

Normal service was restored last night. Seven released The Beast (AKA My Kitchen Rules) from the cave where it spent the past week and Easter, and it promptly ate the competition’s schedule. MKR had 2.054 million national viewers and over 1.4 million in the metros and more than 600,000 regional viewers. Seven won metro and […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: footy and Easter

The good taste of TV viewers was underlined last night with the two most popular non-news programs on TV being Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell (in which Malcolm Turnbull was skewered like he has never been skewered) and the second part of the ABC’s great doco on the history of Australian comedy, Stop Laughing This Is Serious. Mad […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a quiet night in non-ratings

A night really no different to summer viewing (it’s a an off week for official ratings). The final part of the ABC’s examination of recent Australian economic history was fine  (it had 964,000 national viewers, which was respectable). But I am uncomfortable about boasting how the economy dodged a bullet, especially when there’s one loaded […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: MKR goes on holidays

Nine’s night because Seven went to sleep, resting The Beast (AKA My Kitchen Rules). The Block in all its glory did OK for Nine, but without any competition at all except the ABC’s news and current affairs line up (which appeals to grey headed, balding people like myself) failed to have any real impact on the […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: nothing stands in the way of cricket

Well, there was only one thing on TV last night and we all know what that was, don’t we? The World Cup cricket final and as expected, it dominated the night. The final had 3.155 million national viewers watching the final session (the Australian innings). 2.223 million in the metros and 932,000 in the regionals […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: nothing but the cricket

Seven rested The Beast last night, so instead of My Kitchen Rules eating its rivals last night, it was the second World Cup cricket semi final that devoured the opposition, setting up a big final on Sunday.  Nothing else mattered last night — Nine’s domination was complete. The coverage though from Star of India (part of the […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: comedy v drama

First let me apologise to everyone who didn’t watch Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell at 8.30 on ABC last night, or the program that followed, Stop Laughing This is Serious, which is the video history of Australian comedy. They were rotten programs, too funny, too interesting. So don’t watch again you ungrateful … More than a million […]
