Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: all these channels and nothing but cats

Nine won the metros closely, Seven won the regionals convincingly. Ten was third (narrowly in the regions) and the ABC was fourth. Nothing stood out except one program on 7TWO (that’s my view). That was the repeat of Foyle’s War (370,000 national viewers) on Seven’s 7TWO channel last night (it was on the ABC a decade […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a night for current affairs junkies

A usual Monday night with the ABC’s strong news and current affairs line up doing well, Ten struggling, Nine doing OK (led by the News and ACA) and Seven running hard to stay in line. And that was the metros. In the regions, Seven was an easy winner, from Nine, the ABC and Ten. The […]

It is a truth universally acknowledged … that you should never start sentence with that phrase

Pointless, pretentious throat-clearing. It is a truth universally acknowledged that the next columnist or critic who begins their piece with “It is a truth universally acknowledged …” is likely to be murdered. By me. The weapon will be a blunt instrument (The New Shorter Oxford English Dictionary) and my defence at the trial will rest […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: an easy win for The Voice

An easy win for Nine thanks to The Voice and the 6pm News. It won the metros with daylight second and then Seven.  Nine had a closer, but still clear win in the regionals. Ten was behind the ABC again in both the metro and regional markets as the first fresh episode of Vera  (which […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: more disappointment

The test cricket and NRL football on Nine (Gem and Nine’s main channel) did the number for Nine last night in metro and regional markets. And that was that  Seven’s Restaurant Revolution  — 457,000 national viewers, beaten by Lewis on 7TWO — 579,000 national viewers. They went head to head last night and the import won because it was interesting, entertaining and well-acted […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a so-so night

Ten’s The Bachelor stood out last night in that it was the most watched non-news program in the metros. But that’s all you can say. While it helped Ten snaffle a nice set of demo viewers (young women) it did nothing for Ten’s overall performance and it again finished fourth in the metros and regionals […]
