Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: the divide between city and country grows

On the face of it, it was a big win for Nine last night — which it was in the metros, or rather in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Seven won Adelaide and Perth, and won the regionals by a clear margin. In fact The Voice, while it racked up another 2 million-plus national audience (with 531,000 of […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings

A far better performance by Nine last night across the country, with wins everywhere in the metros except in Perth where viewers remain rusted on to Seven. In the regions Nine all but won (Seven was just ahead in total people), but Nine had a big win in the main channels. Overall it was a […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: footy and music

Thankfully, Seven says, the AFL game between the Swans and Port did the trick last night. It won’t be enough to catch Nine in the metros, but in the regionals Seven is home and hosed. Seven won both the metros and the regionals last night. Masterchef Australia was the most popular non-news program and it helped […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: nothing but Masterchef

Yet another split viewing night. Seven won all people in metro markets, but Nine did better in the main channels and in the main demos. Ten was a clear third and the ABC was fourth. But in the regions, Seven was again a big winner from Nine, with Ten third and the ABC fourth. Masterchef […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: The Voice rules the night

Thanks to The Voice and the silly annual Ted Whitten memorial kick and giggle exhibition game in Melbourne, Nine won metros easily last night. It is hard to believe that Seven still managed to get up in regional markets with such a weak performer as Houdini, which bombed badly in the metros with just 310,000 viewers […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a big Monday night in

On the metro ratings last night, you’d be entitled to think that’s Nine’s big win would have been repeated in the regionals. Far from it. In fact Seven won — clearly, but not as big a margin as on Sunday night. As a result of the undoubted popularity of The Voice in most metro markets and the […]

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 […]

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 […]
