Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: the end of the ratings season

Seven won the metros in total people and the main channels, but in the regions Nine won the main channels after Seven won overall. Did anyone see the interview on Nine’s A Current Affair as Tracy Grimshaw met One Direction?  Well, thankfully for Nine, not many people did see it as ACA’s metro audience plunged […]

Crikey says: vale Phillip Hughes

Keane: Abbott’s week from hell. How “full confidence” became the political kiss of death (and David Johnston better watch his back). Are we really a nation of boozers? Mayne’s AGM season wrap. The top five seats to watch in this weekend’s Vic election, plus: could the Libs still swing it? Engineers out of work: are they the canaries in the economic coal mine? A Current Affair’s teeny-bop blunder. Rundle on the great American sitcom. And vale Phillip Hughes.

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: no love for Big Brother

Big Brother helped Nine win the main channels in the metros and total people in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, but not in Adelaide or Perth or in regional areas where Nine was second behind Seven — both overall and in the main channels. Nine was in fact third in Perth in the main channels as local viewers […]

Crikey says: GP co-payment a debacle from the start

Keane: what does Shorten stand for? One year on it’s still unclear. Abbott scrubs French nukes from official press transcript. You’ll never guess who turned up to the Fairfax Christmas party. J-school academics confront the Oz over that “exclusive”. Razer: ABC cuts call for a political defence. Would a train to Melbourne Airport be worth it? Cabcharge’s full-frontal assault on Uber. And premier material: we ask style gurus to assess the Vic leaders (ladies like Dan’s dimples, apparently).

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: viewers choose quality over drivel

Seven’s night in metro and regional markets, easily, with the final of Dancing With The Stars. It’s a good thing there was no lip syncing on the program last night, wasn’t it?

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: ABC rules the roost

A close night in the metros. Nine did best, but still a big win for Seven in the regions and a strong end to Monday nights for the ABC which easily accounted for Ten. The ABC’s Monday night line up of news and current affairs programs departed for summer last nigh, with Four Corners leaving […]

Keane: this is what efficiency looks like. Adelaide ABC staffers give Mark Scott a piece of their minds. Rundle: post-PUP Parliament is a mess — and that’s a good thing. Barry O’Farrell calls bullshit and then backtracks. Herald Sun says jump, Vic leaders ask how high. New Essential polling: voters reject ABC cuts. Family First in bed with the far Right. Lambie joins a long list in Clive’s burn book. Freya Newman dodges jail. And MPs wear their politics for a cause.
