Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Seven wins by a narrow margin

Just another Monday night and despite another very solid night, The Block Glasshouse wasn’t as dominant as the figures would suggest. It had 2.133 million national/ 1.507 million metro/ 625,000 regional viewers. With that sized audience, you would have thought Nine won the night by a mile — it didn’t.

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: reality TV delivers a night of false promises

It was Nine’s night in metro and regional markets with another big rating number for The Block Glasshouse and the returning Big Brother.
