Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: restaurant disasters

What is you opened a restaurant and hardly anyone was coming in through the front door after night three? Would you shut the doors to limit your losses, up the marketing spend, change the food, sack the chef, or just keep going in blind hope? Well, that’s the quandary for the Seven Network and its […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: too many restaurants

Quite a few reputations whacked last night — from the Australian cricket team to Restaurant Revolution on Seven and The Hotplate on Nine, How To Behave Badly on the ABC, to Go Back To Where You Came From. Possibly the only program whose reputation was “enhanced” from last night was the return of the meat market, AKA The Bachelor, […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: dueling cooking shows fail to excite

The two cooking programs — Seven had Restaurant Revolution and The Hotplate on Nine — added precisely zilch to the TV viewing experience last night, but helped produce an underlining of the split in the national TV audience that has been growing for the past couple of years. You see it in the way programs on Nine and Ten are well […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: no more Masterchef

Ten got the winner they really wanted last night on Masterchef Australia with Billie McKay — the standout (for me) of the series — getting up at the last minute against an equally impressive Georgia Barnes. (That last dessert thingie from Heston Blumenthal was a bit unfair). I watched with my remote, and then iViewed. Australian Story has what’s probably the […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: finally, the dying embers of Masterchef

A win for Nine in metros and regional markets because of the strength of the 6pm News (1.916 million national voters), The Voice (2.057 million national voters) and 60 Minutes (1.211 million national voters). Seven was weak as Dancing With The Stars (1.092 million national voters). In the metros, Ten was just third overall, and just […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: nothing but Masterchef

Masterchef Australia’s final elimination episode before the next week’s finals did well last night, as did the Masterclass (which is the better part of the whole lot). That was the night.
