Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a better night for Dancing

Seven’s night as the oldies watched Dancing With The Stars in both the metros and the regions (where Seven had a crushing win). Ten was third and the ABC fourth in the metros, but the positions were reversed in the regions where Ten’s main channel share sank to just 8.1% (it was 11.9% in the metros). […]

Crikey says: pssst, we need to talk about privacy

Five national security lies you were told yesterday. “The border is not a line on the map”: Immigration Department aces newspeak. Margaret Simons joins the ABC debate. Rundle: what the black middle class think of Obama. We ask whistleblowers: would you do it today? The truth about Jedi mind tricks. Keane: why data retention is really war on the internet. Vic Libs in identity crisis. Mayne: chairmen asleep at the wheel. And no, you can’t take coffee into Parliament — but smack is A-OK.

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: ABC’s Wednesday night lineup leaves the commercial networks for dead

Not a program over a million viewers in metro markets — another vote of “boring, boring” from viewers last night. I can now survive for another week after watching last night’s episodesof The Roast, Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell and The Chaser’s Media Circus  — all on ABC TV and nothing on our free enterprise, privately owned networks. Now why is that? All […]

Crikey says: Shorten must step up on national security

Govt unveils fast-track plans for mass surveillance. Brandis to decide which journos get locked up. Shorten’s spineless national security protest. Napthine launches charm offensive; resembles drunk guy on tram. The word on the street from Hockey’s local pizza joint. Palmer deal leaves Australia playing catch-up on climate action. Katter can’t get enough of fuel price hikes. And the Greens are “not very rock’n’roll”: why Gotye is launching a political party.

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a slow night as viewers abandon the box

Seven won Total People in the metros and regional markets where Seven’s margin was more clear cut over Nine. Nine won the demos, even though Big Brother’s metro audience sank to just 591,000.

Crikey says: Senator’s sex life not in the public interest

Keane: Abbott’s call for mature debate is sheer hypocrisy. The mysterious ABC News Intern reveals Mark Scott’s nickname (plus some other more worthy stuff). Rundle goes West. Is Pope Francis really a radical? ABC press gallery numbers revealed (sorry, Sharri). Echoes of the mining tax in higher ed reforms. New whispers about the preference whisperer. Palmer tanking in Queensland. And G20 police fight terrorists … with sticky tape.
