Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: back to reality for Ten

Kerthump! That’s the sound of Ten coming back to earth after the Sunday night boost from the final episode of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.  Hear that? It’s the high-pitched scream of triumph from The Beast (AKA My Kitchen Rules) after it had eaten another Monday night’s offerings from Nine (The Block […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: MKR rules the night

Same old story: cue the beast/monster (AKA My Kitchen Rules), this time with a record setting meal from WA, and the night is all over, although the final week of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here gave some cheek for Ten. My Kitchen Rules had 2.526 million national viewers, including 1.78 million in metro […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: MKR returns

The Monster returned and My Kitchen Rules ate the opposition again, with more than 2.2 million national viewers, even though Nine’s The Block gave a bit of cheek with (I think) 12 room reveals last night for more than 1.3 million national viewers. It was pushed over to last night because of Monday night’s ODI […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: cricket rules all

While the Australia-Sri Lanka world cup cricket game yesterday afternoon and last night did it for Nine, we had another illustration of how cricket is really playing second fiddle at Nine. The network went to an NRL game between Penrith and Canterbury in Sydney and NSW markets yesterday from 3.30pm to 6pm. The World Cup […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: NRL creeps up on MKR

The Monster that is My Kitchen Rules ate the night again with nearly 2.1 million viewers (including 1.433 million metro viewers), but there was a bit of cheek from the first NRL game of the year between defending premiers Souths and Brisbane. Souths flogged Brisbane 36-6 and Nine and its regional affiliate WIN can be happy […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: cricket gives MKR a scare

Nine broadcast the World Cup cricket  (One Day International Australia v Afghanistan) from Perth on its Gem digital channel and essentially cannibalised its main channel last night. This made the night atypical. Seven though won the night thanks to My Kitchen Rules (AKA, The Monster with 2.1 million national and 1.5 million metro viewers). Winter […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: 7.30 out-rates The Block

Cue the Monster and Seven wins the night again as My Kitchen Rules (2.3030 million national viewers) dominated TV viewing for yet another night.

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: a one-show night

My Kitchen Rules again monstered the rest of the line ups on other nights (with 2.127 million national viewers and almost 1.5 million metro), leaving Seven with another big win. Ten had another solid night (especially compared to its abject slide a year ago). The ABC’s much trumpeted drama, Hiding, managed 327,000 metro viewers  (520,000 […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: MKR dominates

My Kitchen Rules ruled again last night with just on 2.2 million viewers. Seven’s Winter developed a bit of a chill in so far as viewers are concerned — their hands seemed frozen on other channels from 9pm, or they went to bed judging by the 150,000 drop in the national audience to 1.149 million. It still […]

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.

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a weak night for everything but MKR

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 […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: no luck for Nine

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.

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: no hope for MKR rivals

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 […]

Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: no room for MKR competitors

The monster (AKA My Kitchen Rules, 2.374 million national viewers, 1.632 million metro, 742,000 regional viewers) rolled over the opposition last night, again.
