Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: repeats and the cricket

Another of those nights last night that required stamina and a complete and utter memory loss as repeats rolled across the screen, or programs which should have never seen the light of a TV screen,  with a few exceptions. QI on ABC because it is moderately entertaining, the test cricket on Nine, which ended late. The […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: from the siege to summer

An anti-climatic night last night after the events of the previous 36 hours. And the viewing didn’t help lift spirits. It was a pretty arid night — Hugh Grant as the British PM (Tony Blair????) in Love Actually on Seven at 8.30pm. Really, I ask you. Love Actually is in that small group of go to movies […]

Keane: why we need an independent inquiry into intelligence failures that led to Sydney siege. Govt dodges questions on data retention.

Well, after the events of yesterday and last night in Sydney, no commentary. It all seems a bit superfluous, really. So no program rankings or figures, just network shares. The broadcasting of the siege made it hard to work out accurate figures from this morning. The Sydney siege boosted the viewer numbers on News 24 […]

Sydney siege: the day the media lost its credibility, this is not terrorism, the best and worst of Twitter, and Uber’s “asshole culture” on display. Plus: Hockey missed the investment memo on MYEFO. Unions “just delaying the inevitable” at ABC. Essential: voters reckon Abbott won’t last until the election. Adler’s new gig? Vic upper house: the numbers.
