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 […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: finally, the dying embers of Masterchef

A win for Nine in metros and regional markets because of the strength of the 6pm News (1.916 million national voters), The Voice (2.057 million national voters) and 60 Minutes (1.211 million national voters). Seven was weak as Dancing With The Stars (1.092 million national voters). In the metros, Ten was just third overall, and just […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: nothing but Masterchef

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. Really dull. Masterchef Australia topped the night nationally and in the metros with 1.647 million and 1.247 million respectively, but not in the regions […]

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 […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a shocker for Seven

Nine’s night in metro and regionals (main channels there, Seven won overall) as The Voice again topped the night with nearly 2 million national viewers, including 556,000 in the regionals (Number 1). Masterchef Australia was second as the finals week advances — it had 1.640 million national viewers, including 409,000 regional viewers, which is OK. Seven was weak […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a disappointing end for House Rules

A week ago Seven asked in a promotion for last night’s Grand Final of House Rules, ”What are 3 million Aussies doing next Monday night?” Well, one million didn’t turn up and the Winner’s Announcement could only get to 1.998 million viewers across the nation  (let’s call it 2 million) — the Grand Final itself got to 1.756 […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: the all-singing, all-dancing Sunday night

An easy win in the metros for Nine thanks to the unlikely combination of The Voice on Nine’s main channel and the second Ashes test on the Gem digital channel. In fact, the game saw normal service restored in test cricket with Australia ruling the roost after the Cardiff stumble. Nine also won regional markets, […]

Ah, we love a winner, especially when they bat first, get a couple of lives and go on to whack the Poms, sorry, England, around Lords, making Old Father Time a bit older and rustier and condemning Alastair Cook’s mob to a night out behind The Nursery End, and not the Long Room and its […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Gatsby bombs

Take The Voice out of Nine’s line up and the network runs third in the metros and second in the regionals behind Seven and Ten (in the metros) and Seven in the regions. Nine programmed the movie The Great Gatsby at 8.30pm. It bombed with just 261,000 metro viewers (just 408,000 nationally). Leonardo DiCaprio and Baz Luhrmann […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: more bad news for Seven

Week over and won by Nine. Last night in metro markets was another night Seven would like to forget. Yes, there was a small improvement in House Rules, but that was barely enough to bother the excitement meter. In the morning Today (316,000) beat Sunrise (293,000) in the metros, but was well beaten nationally. In […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Nine’s night

Nine wins, Seven weak. It was the same message in the metros as in the regionals. End of night. The Voice topped the night with 2.292 million national viewers including a very tasty 621,000 in the regions. Lip Synch Battle had 1.509 million viewers and Nine News had more than 1.7 million. ACA did well […]

Nine’s night in the metros but not in the regions, despite a very solid night for The Voice which topped the night everywhere with more than 2.5 million national viewers, including 680,000 in regional areas. Ten was third in the metros, but fourth behind the ABC in the regions both overall and in the main channels.

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: nothing comes close to Nine

Nine’s night, end of story, thanks to the boost from the second night of the first Ashes Test. Nine won both metro and regional markets quite easily. Nine lost the main channels, but another solid performance from the cricket on Gem saw it home. I can tell you the Day 2 of the test cricket […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Origin and Ashes

Greedy Nine might have won the night thanks to its hogging of the Test cricket and the State of Origin, but both disappointed. The Origin lead up near hour bored us again, as did the 40 minutes of lead up to the start of the Test. The same yellers and yakkers from Australia were there. […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings

A better result for Nine nationally last night, with a clear win in the metros and a win (narrow) in the main channels in the regionals as Seven’s Wimbledon coverage pushed it to a total people win in those markets. But it was a minor victory. The night clearly was Nine’s as tonight will be […]
