Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: repeats and the cricket

Another of those nights last night that required stamina and a complete and utter memory loss as repeats rolled across the screen, or programs which should have never seen the light of a TV screen,  with a few exceptions. QI on ABC because it is moderately entertaining, the test cricket on Nine, which ended late. The […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: from the siege to summer

An anti-climatic night last night after the events of the previous 36 hours. And the viewing didn’t help lift spirits. It was a pretty arid night — Hugh Grant as the British PM (Tony Blair????) in Love Actually on Seven at 8.30pm. Really, I ask you. Love Actually is in that small group of go to movies […]

The broadcasting of the siege made it hard to work out accurate figures from this morning. The Sydney siege boosted the viewer numbers on News 24 […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: the summer slide

The less said about last night and the rest of the coming week, so far as TV is concerned, the better.
