Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: viewers choose quality over drivel

Seven’s night in metro and regional markets, easily, with the final of Dancing With The Stars. It’s a good thing there was no lip syncing on the program last night, wasn’t it? (Ha, Daniel McPherson what were you singing?). At least some ‘reality’ series such as Dancing With The Stars, like The Block, House Rules and Masterchef […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: ABC rules the roost

A close night in the metros. Nine did best, but still a big win for Seven in the regions and a strong end to Monday nights for the ABC which easily accounted for Ten. The ABC’s Monday night line up of news and current affairs programs departed for summer last nigh, with Four Corners leaving […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: easing into the summer

Thankfully the final game of this series of Nine’s ODI cricket, plus the second part of Cilla, and especially the final episode of the Countdown special graced our TV screens last night — otherwise it would have been a foretaste of what lies ahead in the next 10 weeks of summer ratings, which start next Sunday night. In […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a mass exodus from commercial networks

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: another shocker for Ten

The third ODI between Australia and South Africa (good win by Australia on the MCG sized ground in Canberra) did the trick for Nine last night in metro and regional markets. The ABC battled gamely thanks to Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell and a good episode of The Chaser’s Media Circus in which the G20 […]

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

Seven’s night in metro and regional markets in 25 to 54s (thanks to the venerable Dancing With The Stars, which remains good fun), and in Total People. Nine was second, but claimed first spot in 16 to 39s and 18 to 49s with the dying Big Brother and two late repeats of The Big Bang […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: ABC newscaff owns the night

A close night in metros with Nine and Seven neck and neck overall and Nine in front in the main channels and in the demos. Seven was an easy winner in the regionals where Nine’s line up just doesn’t click these days, especially Big Brother. And nor did Ten’s line up go down well in regional markets — it […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: nostalgia rules the night

Nostalgia ruled last night as the first part of the ABC’s Countdown  birthday special dominated at 8.35 pm with 1.429 million national viewers, followed by the first of a three part biopic on Cilla Black (1.146 million national viewers) which was excellent, even though the Liverpudlian accents were hard to grasp. Seven won nationally and in […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: a race to the bottom

Another so-so night, with only the ABC and some of the digital channels showing programs with a spark of interest for viewers. Nine was the most watched network in metro markets. In regional markets Seven won total people, Nine won the demos, Ten had more viewers, ABC easily beat Ten into third in the main […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: viewers flock to secondary channels

Seven won Total People in metro and regional markets (streeted Nine actually in the regions), the ABC was third and Ten a weak fourth). ABC TV management did the right thing yesterday and gave Mad As Hell another season, and Shaun Micallef the starring role in a new series  where he plays a struggling former […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a disappointing night all round

Thanks to Dancing With The Stars, the grizzled veteran, Seven won the night clearly in metro and regional markets in Total People. Nine though says it won the major demos, while Ten had a better night with programs viewers wanted to watch, even if they were repeats in some cases. Dancing With The Stars was the […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: repeats rule the night

Nine won the metros from Seven, the ABC and Ten. Seven won the regionals from the ABC and then a distant Ten. Ten’s Party Tricks went out with a whimper of 723,000 national viewers (and yes, Nina lost the election — she’s now a single mum without a hubbie or an electorate or a state to run). […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: nothing but the cricket

The Twenty 20 tip and run won the night for Nine in metros and the regionals with 1.669 million viewers. End of story. Seven was a distant second, the ABC third and Ten was fourth in metro markets and the regionals as well. Nine won Total People and the demos. The Twenty 20 game was […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: ABC manages the best programming

Almost a draw in the metros with Seven just ahead in Total People and the main channels, and doing well in the demos. In the regions, Seven was a bigger winner. The ABC also was third in the regions, with Ten a distant fourth, unlike the metros where Ten had its nose in front in […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: current affairs and Big Bangs

A typical end of ratings year Monday night. The Big Bang Theory dragged Nine across the line in the metros, the ABC did well with its usual Monday line up of news and current affairs, particularly Q&A with George Brandis in Bankstown. When will Tony Abbott have the guts to front Q&A on the same basis? Seven struggled, […]

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). […]

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 […]

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. Seven’s share in the demos from 16 to 54 fell to third last night because Dancing With The Stars (which skews old) […]
