Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: the NRL grand final dominates the night

Only one program last night   — the Battle of Homebush (sub species the Cheekbone Sam Burgess Bravus), also known as the NRL Grand Final.

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: the end of The Bachelor farce

Ten’s The Bachelor slithered to top spot on the most watched lists nationally and in metro last night, but not regional markets. It was a rare victory for the embattled network, and yet Ten was strangely quiet this morning about trumpeting that success and the glamour couple’s obvious attractions for each other. Wouldn’t be surprised if […]

Seven returned Dancing With the Stars to the screen for its 14th series last night and viewers hung round —  though not in the same numbers as in past years. The metro figure of 1.040 million for two and a half hours from 7.30 was the lowest so far for the series starter. But it was enough […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Ten calls the Cops on ratings

Ten failed with its two new cops programs; Seven safely downloaded, sorry, fast tracked the first of the new season episodes of The Blacklist and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The Blacklist did well, finishing third nationally, up from sixth in the metros. Nine depended on the durable episode of The Block Glasshouse, while Big Brother failed […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: dross on main channels, gold on digital

Nine’s night in metro and regional markets. Ten was third in the metros but the ABC topped it in the regions, forcing Ten back to fourth. Once again it was a pretty average night of viewing — The Block Glasshouse was most watched program simply because there was very little competition on other networks. It had 1.762 […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Seven wins by a narrow margin

Just another Monday night and despite another very solid night, The Block Glasshouse wasn’t as dominant as the figures would suggest. It had 2.133 million national/ 1.507 million metro/ 625,000 regional viewers. With that sized audience, you would have thought Nine won the night by a mile — it didn’t. It certainly had a good win in […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Big Brother bombs for Nine

The figures were split again last night with Nine winning the metros and Seven winning the regions. Ten was a very weak fourth (now normal for a Sunday) in both — its metro main channel share was 8.7% and just 7% in the regions. Back to the bad old days again, for one night at least. Ten […]

It was Nine’s night in metro and regional markets with another big rating number for The Block Glasshouse and the returning Big Brother. Seven’s The X Factor was its own worst enemy in promising something that really didn’t matter, but was really aimed at the returning Big Brother on Nine. Ten was fourth behind the ABC in […]
