Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: reality TV fails to attract an audience

For such an average night of programming, the surprise was in the ratings reports for metro and regional markets this morning. TV viewing cleaved into two distinct groups. The metros favoured Nine as a clear winner over Seven, but in the regions, Seven won over Nine. Ten was third overall, with the ABC fourth in […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: weak programming spreads to Thursday nights

It’s a pretty weak night when an NRL match is one of the viewing highlights, simply because it is live and the result unknown. Catalyst on ABC 1 was again interesting, Silk at 8.30pm is now in soapy territory and nothing after 7pm had a million or more viewers in the metros. The fact that […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: ABC programming trumps The Bachelor

Seven won metro and regional markets overall, but again lost the important main channels where most of the advertising money is spent. Ten finished third in the metros, but fourth in the regions as the ABC’s offerings proved more popular than The Bachelor and Wonderland. The Block Glasshouse couldn’t make top spot in either metro […]
