Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings

The Voice did it for Nine, but only in metros and really only in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane which were won by Nine. Seven won Adelaide and Perth. In the regionals Seven was an easy winner as The Voice failed to strike the right note with viewers. Ten’s recent solid performance came to a halt […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: footy and cooking

Seven’s night in metros and regional markets last night, with the AFL game between Freo and Collingwood doing the job in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. Ten’s move to run two episodes of Masterchef Australia back-to-back pushed it up into second place in the main channels and a very close third in total people, and great demos […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Mid-week footy shows fail to entice viewers

A close night in the metros. Seven finished just in front of Nine and Ten in Total People and the main channels, but Masterchef Australia’s performance gave Ten a whack of the best demo viewers. But in the regionals, it was a very easy win for Seven. In fact so easy was it that daylight was […]

Nine and Ten’s night in the metros, but not for Seven whose heavily promoted Houdini sank (like one of his tricks), but unlike the great illusionist, the program didn’t re-emerge — it drowned. As a result Seven finished third in the metros in total people and the main channels. A night that will prompt more than one or […]
