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 […]
