Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: expensive reality TV bombs on all channels

There will be no rejoicing in the executive suites of Nine, Seven or Ten today at the way their flagship programs performed in prime time last night. Seven’s The X Factor did best of all, but it was well down on 2013 figures. Nine’s The Block Glasshouse is now in its boring early series part, […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: the last of the big audiences for Ten

A funny night and one that really didn’t register with many viewers, judging by the morning reports. The Commonwealth Games saved Ten from a rotten night, helping it to a gentle decline from Monday night’s year high peak. In fact, the Games coverage was the network’s most watched bits of programming last night. Tonight it’s […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: another win for Ten, but will it last?

MasterChef Australia finally did it for Ten last night in metro markets, with the finale and winner topping the ratings.

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Nine games the system to boost ratings

The Nine Network followed Ten down the slippery route of jiggling its rating figures to boost the numbers for the latest series of The Block. Ten simulcasts Family Feud at 6pm Monday to Fridays on its main channel and its digital channels (ONE and Eleven) and aggregates the audience figures of the three channels into […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: viewers tired of talent quests

A weak performance from both The X Factor and The Voice Kids on Nine. Seven pushed the episode of The X Factor out to Wednesday night late to try and catch Nine (which had scheduled repeats of The Big Bang Theory). Maybe that was a reason why the audiences were low, but that’s grasping at straws as both networks promoted […]
