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 […]

Old Macdonald’s defence of sexism. Rundle on the empty self-pity of American Sniper. Armed drones take off Down Under. And No You Can’t: Tony’s hopeless campaign poster.

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.
