Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a night of copycats

The Voice and it was Nine’s night in metro markets (but not in Perth where they prefer a Tango over Vibrato). Ten though reverted to the past with fourth place and with its main channel share under 10% in both the metros (9.1%) and the regionals (7.6%), which was really poor. Nine and Seven shared […]
