Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: ABC shows them how it’s done

Despite the lowish audience, the ABC again showed the Nine Network how to make a terrific drama out of a significant crime and social issue story in last night's telemovie Dangerous Remedy.

The Glenn Dyer breakdown: A close night. Nine won in metro markets (overall and the main channels), but that was due to a big win in Melbourne where viewers have been right off Seven for some time. Seven did a lot better in Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth and in regional markets (again).

Ten had a stronger night because the ABC was weaker with Modern Family again shouldering the burden for Ten as Homeland went missing. Damn downloaders. But the ABC beat Ten into third spot again in Sydney.
