Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Beauty and the Geek shine for Seven

Beauty and the Geek Australia was the most watched program with more than 1.23 million metro viewers. Some of it looked appalling, but, hey, I'm not in the demos that matter.

The Glenn Dyer breakdown: Seven’s night, easily, as Ten spun its wheels (again) and Nine lost ground as it switched to a semi-summer mode. Beauty and the Geek Australia (BATFG) was the most-watched program with more than 1.23 million metro viewers. Some of it looked appalling, but, hey, I’m not in the demos that matter. BATG saw a big jump last week and it continued last night. It added more than 300,000 last week with Big Brother still on Nine. BB vanished on Wednesday and another 260,000 viewers jumped to BATG.

Seven was also dominant in regional markets, again. Overall, a weak night. Brynne: My Bedazzled Life faded to black with 910,000 viewers in metro markets and that final flourish can be put down to the ending of BB.
