Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: back to regular programming

Australian TV viewers loved the tennis on Seven last night, and believe it or not, they loved Andy Murray who beat Thomas Berdych in a sometimes spiteful match last night. Nine’s episode of The Block wasn’t the full triple treat (that was an ugly ice cream from yesteryear from memory) because it wasn’t screened in […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: sport finishes up as ratings season returns

Another big night, and what a finish to the Big Bash cricket on Ten from chilly Canberra — a win off the very last ball for Perth’s Scorchers (who looked as though they were suffering from permafrost at times), with Brett lee denied the most romantic of endings to his great career, a title for his Sydney […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: sport v The Block

A great night of top flight sports viewing. The Socceroos were great, as were Nick Kyrgios and Andy Murray. No doubt the greybeards and heads among the chattering and tapping commentariat will rattle on about K’s racquet-busting, but so what? He’s 19 and growing up. Australians voted with their remotes —  for the tennis. The Nick Kyrgios […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Nine leans on old faithfuls to replace the cricket

The last week of non-ratings and like the drums in Fernando, you can hear and feel the ratings pressure mounting as Nine, Seven and Ten (and the ABC) step up their onscreen and online spruiking. But apart from the sport, there’s nothing much on the screen to hold us in front of the box in […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: the sportsfest continues

Disappointment at the tennis, joy at soccer’s Asian Cup with two goals by the 2015 sportsman of the year, Tim Cahill. It will be a huge game in Newcastle next week for the semi final against either Japan or the UAE who play their quarter final tonight. The game was watched by a total of […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: tennis wins out over cricket

Tennis did the job again for Seven last night, although for a third night it was on the nose in Brisbane, where viewers seem to be very unenthused about the Open and the success of the Australian players. Still that’s Queensland and viewers up there have had to battle daylight saving, fading curtains and anxious […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: tennis, tennis and more tennis

Don’t you reckon the folk at the top of struggling (well, as far as the the share price is concerned) Seven West Media wish they could bottle Lleyton Hewitt’s efforts in the Australian Open men’s tennis, so that when ratings dip later in the year across the schedule, the spirit of the lad could be […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Seven loses viewers to its digital channels

Lots of tennis on Seven’s main channel and on 7TWO as the network doubles its coverage by broadcasting more games — especially, as we saw yesterday — matches featuring Australians in the first round and some highly seeded players going up against lesser ranked players. This is a very interesting test of viewer reaction (and awareness, especially) by Seven […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: nothing but the cricket

The One Day International cricket match between Australia and India from the MCG dominated viewing yesterday afternoon and last night.

There were […]
