Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: scraping the bottom of the barrel with Beauty and the Geek

Not one program managed a million or more metro viewers. In other words a bit of a yawn-fest last night as Beauty And The Geek Australia and Big Brother fought it out in the mud at the bottom of the week’s TV ratings trough. Beauty And The Geek Australia episode one managed 919,000 national viewers, which would have […]

Crikey says: govt has dropped the ball on ASIC

Keane: US could draft Australian legislation under TPP. The made-up 2UE rumour that sparked a burqa ban? Rundle gets (legally) baked in Baker, Colorado. The back story to those sweary princesses. News Corp and the ABC clean up at the Walkleys. We fact-check Sheridan and Co on Whitlam’s economic cred. Ludlam goes full Gandalf. A three-way manjam in Prahran. Peter Farnan in defence of U2. Pyne’s Bishop gaffe. And who needs the ABC when we’ve got BuzzFeed?

Crikey says: we stand with Freya

Keane: Bishop bows to Ebola pressure. Suck it up Labor, today’s Gough would be Green. New Matilda in landmark privacy case. More ads for SBS. Rundle in America: curtains for the Dems’ Senate majority. Gillard’s goldfish (sort of) explained. The preference whisperer heads to Spring St. Pyne’s curriculum review shambolic compared to Howard’s. Mayne: name and shame secretive councils. Whitlam’s mining legacy. And Razer reckons baby, you weren’t born this way.

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Gough and cooking dominate ratings

Seven’s night in the metros and regionals. Dancing With The Stars did the job for Seven, even though it failed  to crack the million viewer mark in the metros. Nine did well in the demos because Dancing (1.437 million national viewers) dominated the grey hairs. The two Whitlam doco episodes (The Power and The Passion) […]

Potty-mouthed mandarins. Dan Moss: why Brandis wants to send me to jail. Airstrike! The musical. Voters back Abbott’s Ebola apathy. The Beeb heads Down Under.
