Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: footy and music

Thankfully, Seven says, the AFL game between the Swans and Port did the trick last night. It won’t be enough to catch Nine in the metros, but in the regionals Seven is home and hosed. Seven won both the metros and the regionals last night. Masterchef Australia was the most popular non-news program and it helped […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: nothing but Masterchef

Yet another split viewing night. Seven won all people in metro markets, but Nine did better in the main channels and in the main demos. Ten was a clear third and the ABC was fourth. But in the regions, Seven was again a big winner from Nine, with Ten third and the ABC fourth. Masterchef […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: The Voice rules the night

Thanks to The Voice and the silly annual Ted Whitten memorial kick and giggle exhibition game in Melbourne, Nine won metros easily last night. It is hard to believe that Seven still managed to get up in regional markets with such a weak performer as Houdini, which bombed badly in the metros with just 310,000 viewers […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a big Monday night in

On the metro ratings last night, you’d be entitled to think that’s Nine’s big win would have been repeated in the regionals. Far from it. In fact Seven won — clearly, but not as big a margin as on Sunday night. As a result of the undoubted popularity of The Voice in most metro markets and the […]

The Voice did it for Nine, but only in metros and really only in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane which were won by Nine. Seven won Adelaide and Perth. In the regionals Seven was an easy winner as The Voice failed to strike the right note with viewers. Ten’s recent solid performance came to a halt […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: footy and cooking

Seven’s night in metros and regional markets last night, with the AFL game between Freo and Collingwood doing the job in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. Ten’s move to run two episodes of Masterchef Australia back-to-back pushed it up into second place in the main channels and a very close third in total people, and great demos […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Mid-week footy shows fail to entice viewers

A close night in the metros. Seven finished just in front of Nine and Ten in Total People and the main channels, but Masterchef Australia’s performance gave Ten a whack of the best demo viewers. But in the regionals, it was a very easy win for Seven. In fact so easy was it that daylight was […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: cooking and Killing

Nine and Ten’s night in the metros, but not for Seven whose heavily promoted Houdini sank (like one of his tricks), but unlike the great illusionist, the program didn’t re-emerge — it drowned. As a result Seven finished third in the metros in total people and the main channels. A night that will prompt more than one or […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Nine romps it in

A rare win in metro and regional markets last night for Nine as Reno Rumble and Married At First Sight finished up.  Nine’s programs did well in both metro and regional markets and it was an easy win. Married At First Sight topped the night in nationally and metro markets with 1.862 million viewers (and 572,000 in […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: footy and renovations

A mixed night.Thanks to a strong performance in Melbourne by Ten and Masterchef Australia (it was the most watched program in Melbourne last night) the night’s outcome was skewed. Seven won Total People in the metros and lost the main channels to Nine. Nine won Sydney (by a big margin), Ten won Melbourne and Seven won Brisbane, […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Masterchef still dominates

Seven’s night in metro and regional markets, thanks to the AFL game from Adelaide won by Hawthorn over the Crows, Cats in Sydney and Brisbane and weak programming on Nine. There was nothing to support Masterchef Australia on Ten which was the most watched program in metro markets, along with Nine News. Masterchef Australia though […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: State of Origin rules all

Game 2 of the State of Origin was the only show in town and on TV last night that mattered for the bulk of the audience and as usual it dominated viewing — even in Perth, which is an AFL heartland (and it did well in Melbourne, helping Nine win the night, along with The AFL Footy Show). […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: a killer of a night

Seven’s night in metro and regional markets. Nine was second, Ten third and the ABC fourth, but in the metros that disguised some mixed results in the various capitals.

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: attack of the ABC

Bad luck Ten. For all the brave talk of the rebound in audience numbers (which is still happening, such as the appalling mess of the network’s 2014 performance), last night will not go down as the one of the Network’s best Monday nights, easily beaten for third spot by the ABC (which came  very close […]

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

In terms of the audience’s reaction to last night, it was a thumbs down except for Masterchef Australia which remains in the part of its season where there’s a solid program for viewers to watch on Thursday nights. They did,  even in regional markets — nearly 1.5 million national viewers for the program last night, with 370,000 in […]

Just a waste of a night really, except for Masterchef Australia (don’t like eliminations on a Thursday night though) and the Masterclass. The Footy Show (NRL) on Nine was weak.
