Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Bolt fails to bump off Insiders

The Block had its best night so far this season with the final room reveal. The room reveal was the most watched program (or part of program) in metro markets, but not nationally as The Beast (My Kitchen Rules) easily topped it. The Block’s Room Reveal had 1.977 million national viewers and My Kitchen Rules had […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a forgettable evening

Thursday night apart from Seven was a bit of a wasteland, along with another solid effort from The Checkout on ABC at 8pm — 1.047 million viewers and deserved more. Australia: The Story of Us (1.185 million national viewers) and Downton Abbey (1.073 million viewers), plus Home and Away (1.294 million viewers) stood out in commercial TV. A […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: ABC wins on quality

Last night was the debut of The Weakly, sorry, The Weekly: an ABC cross between any of the US news/ comedy shows (John Stewart or Bill Maher), Good News Week (on Ten), Mad As Hell and The Project. A forced debut last night at 8.30pm, so let’s give a few more weeks of its 20 week […]

No news is good news for incumbent on ABC and SBS contracts

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Sam Neill’s Anzac is a treat

Thanks ABC and Sam Neill and the producers of his Anzac special last night (from 8.30). It was a true Anzac report, encompassing his Kiwi heritage and his Australian life. It was the best piece so far in the orgy of stories and lashings of jingoistic nationalism about the heroic digger/Anzac Day moulding of Australia […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: The Beast is back

A big win for Seven in metro and especially regional markets, thanks to The Beast (AKA My Kitchen Rules) and the Russell Crowe movie, The Water Diviner (which Seven helped finance and produce), which you’d have to say under-performed last night given it was on TV only three months after premiering in Australia (and in […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Anzac fatigue

A close night. Nine did slightly better than Seven in metro and regional markets and Ten and the ABC also did OK (closeish). Seven’s News was tops, boosted by having various AFL games as the lead in program in some markets — it had 2.1 million national viewers. My Kitchen Rules had 1.980 million national viewers (a […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a disappointment all round

Nine’s night in the metros, but not in the regionals where Seven was a very easy winner. That’s yet another example of the clear split between metro and regional viewers that many in TV ignore. Seven’s new line up didn’t really grab metro viewers. Home and Away did OK nationally with 1.233 million viewers , […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: The Block gets one over MKR

Well, The Beast (My Kitchen Rules) was muzzled somewhat last night and had to withstand a counter attack from the The Block. As a result, Seven had its closest win with My Kitchen Rules in the schedule for sometime, but Nine did very well in the major demos, and so claimed a sort of “moral” victory […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: ABC wins out

Thankfully The Checkout returned to ABC last night. Home and Away ticked over for Seven last night. If they hadn’t been in the schedule, it would have been a night more dull than it was. The telemovie of Redfern Now on ABC was also more than OK.  The Checkout’s return was appreciated by viewers: 1.077 million watched nationally […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: ABC chooses quality over quantity

Only three programs of note last night. The Beast (AKA My Kitchen Rules) won the night for Seven with 2.180 million national viewers,  assisted by a solid effort from Criminal Minds with more than 1.36 million national viewers. The other two (confused? Well, Criminal Minds was only an assist, not a standout performer) were the penultimate […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Ten fights back

A one program night again. The Beast was on the prowl and My Kitchen Rules ruled. Ten did a bit better, in fact a lot better than it did over Easter with mildly interesting programs and solid figures for the  5pm News. My Kitchen Rules had 2.116 million national viewers. The Block on Nine had 1.380 […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: the return of MKR

Normal service was restored last night. Seven released The Beast (AKA My Kitchen Rules) from the cave where it spent the past week and Easter, and it promptly ate the competition’s schedule. MKR had 2.054 million national viewers and over 1.4 million in the metros and more than 600,000 regional viewers. Seven won metro and […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: footy and Easter

The good taste of TV viewers was underlined last night with the two most popular non-news programs on TV being Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell (in which Malcolm Turnbull was skewered like he has never been skewered) and the second part of the ABC’s great doco on the history of Australian comedy, Stop Laughing This Is Serious. Mad […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a quiet night in non-ratings

A night really no different to summer viewing (it’s a an off week for official ratings). The final part of the ABC’s examination of recent Australian economic history was fine  (it had 964,000 national viewers, which was respectable). But I am uncomfortable about boasting how the economy dodged a bullet, especially when there’s one loaded […]

Nine’s night because Seven went to sleep, resting The Beast (AKA My Kitchen Rules). The Block in all its glory did OK for Nine, but without any competition at all except the ABC’s news and current affairs line up (which appeals to grey headed, balding people like myself) failed to have any real impact on the […]

Well, there was only one thing on TV last night and we all know what that was, don’t we? The World Cup cricket final and as expected, it dominated the night. The final had 3.155 million national viewers watching the final session (the Australian innings). 2.223 million in the metros and 932,000 in the regionals […]
