Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a mass exodus from commercial networks

Upper Middle Bogan had 839,000 national viewers,  It’s A Date had 712,000. In terms of winning, Nine made it in metro markets, Seven in the regionals in Total […]

Crikey says: Latham doesn’t know much about western Sydney mothers

Keane: this ain’t the mid-term blues, Abbott is in deep trouble (even Bolt thinks so). Rundle on Obama’s immigration amnesty. Extortion at estimates. Lewis Review word cloud — you’ll never guess which word appears most. ABC hires fresh blood amid cuts. She’s baaack! We compile the top 10 Pauline-isms. Hadley’s surprise support for public broadcasting. What we’ll lose when 7.30 state editions are dumped. And an East West Link cock-up?

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: another shocker for Ten

The third ODI between Australia and South Africa (good win by Australia on the MCG sized ground in Canberra) did the trick for Nine last night in metro and regional markets. The ABC battled gamely thanks to Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell and a good episode of The Chaser’s Media Circus in which the G20 […]

Crikey says: Abbott’s ABC pledge must be taken in context

Rupert’s wish list — we count how many items the Abbott govt has ticked off. SBS can’t compete: media buyers shrug off Turnbull’s ad increase. Fairfax and the outsourced death notices. Keane: FOFA failure a win for good policy. Barry Spurr is back. Mayne: the mystery of the Saudi prince and his voting record. Boom Crash Opera muso rediscovers a love of prog. Razer: hands off my cream buns, sugar Nazis. And could there really be life on Mars?

Crikey says: thank Lambie for killing FOFA repeal

Wondering what you’re missing over at Crikey? Here’s a taste of today’s newsletter, including our exclusive on the mass sacking at SBS’s Dateline, how tabloid talk of ‘jihadi jelly-bellies’ is taking the focus away from the real problem of Western men travelling to the Middle East to become jihadis and why ‘social experiment’ videos are actually elaborate practical jokes. Want to know why Guy Rundle thinks the WA government’s plan to close down remote indigenous communities is straight-up racism or why Xi Jinping’s promises to Australia mightn’t be genuine?

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a quiet night for all

Seven’s night in metro and regional markets in 25 to 54s (thanks to the venerable Dancing With The Stars, which remains good fun), and in Total People. Nine was second, but claimed first spot in 16 to 39s and 18 to 49s with the dying Big Brother and two late repeats of The Big Bang […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: ABC newscaff owns the night

A close night in metros with Nine and Seven neck and neck overall and Nine in front in the main channels and in the demos. Seven was an easy winner in the regionals where Nine’s line up just doesn’t click these days, especially Big Brother. And nor did Ten’s line up go down well in regional markets — it […]
