Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Seven romps it in again

My Kitchen Rules (2.407 million national) was back in Seven’s schedule last night and that was the end of proceedings.  Seven won metro and regional markets easily as a result and scooped up the demos into the bargain. Ten’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here (1.012 million national) lost viewers, but held up quite well […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: competitions thoroughly beaten down by MKR

Seven again rested the monster (My Kitchen Rules) and Nine, Ten and the ABC made hay, or rather their underfire programs tried to. So The Block did OK, but should have really done better with clear air! Ten’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and Shank Blank (sorry, Shark Tank) did OK, as they all […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: ABC news outrates Seven news

Another night dominated by My Kitchen Rules — end of story. Boring, I know, but Seven’s juggernaut continues to devour its opposition with 2.1 million national viewers last night. But Seven’s highly promoted How To Get Away With Murder continues to sink as Australian TV viewers give another solid US import the big thumbs down. How To […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Seven wins again

It was baaaackkk … My Kitchen Rules, that is, was back in the Seven line up last night. As a result ratings for Nine’s The Block (1.153 million national viewers) and Ten’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here (824,000 national viewers) returned to their disappointingly low levels after their holiday boosts on Sunday […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Seven cuts Nine and Ten a break

Seven rested My Kitchen Rules last night (and again next Sunday night, according to the early guides) and the mice played, with The Block and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, plus Shark Tank all doing better than on previous Sunday nights.

Monster Kitchen Rules won it for Seven with more than 2 million national viewers and over 1.3 million metro viewers. And that was the night. Fans of Katherine Heigl (not me!) didn’t show up to support the debut episode of State of Affairs on Seven last night. It had 932,000 national viewers, which is just […]

The night of the Cooking Monster (AKA My Kitchen Rules) which had a huge 2.447 million national viewers — over 1.7 million metro and over 700,000 regional viewers.

One program ruled last night, again, OK!  My Kitchen Rules  — 2.444 million viewers across the country including more than 1.7 million in the metros. As a result, Seven wins and wins easily. That meant Nine’s The Block struggled, as did Ten’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, which also found it tough going. Almost […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: a nasty shock for Nine

A big win for Seven as it experienced the same level of shock this morning as Seven did yesterday. Seven was very surprised to see the way the audience, especially in metro markets, failed to support their expensive Australia: the Story of US. This morning Nine will be shattered to see that viewers deserted Gallipoli […]

Nine’s night in the metros, Seven’s in the regions, as House of Hancock’s audience jumped thanks to all that free publicity from Gina Rinehart’s last minute attempt to block it in in the NSW Supreme Court on Friday which ended up in a confidential agreement, a disclaimer and undisclosed changes to what went to air. The portrayal […]
