Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: viewers desert commercial networks

A solid win for Seven in the metros and the regions, and for once, in the demographics —  Beauty and The Geek did as expected for Seven — slid, Big Brother slid — and the ABC returned  Upper Middle Bogan and It’s a Date to reasonable numbers — and it was great to have classy, interesting programs back in the schedule. Established performers […]

Thankfully the ABC saved the day last night, wiping Ten off the dance floor as the Chaser team returned with Media Circus and a whack or 30 at the media. Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell continued to serve up its own whacks as a lead in to The Chasers. And Home Delivery returned after The Chaser […]
