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.

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 […]

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.

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a quiet night all round

So, it was Nine’s night in the metros given it won the main channels and shared the night overall with Seven — oh, no it wasn’t. It was Ten’s night really because Masterchef Australia lifted it to a win in the metro main channels. In regionals, Seven won easily from Nine, then Ten. Masterchef Australia hit a […]
