Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: improved 7.30 continues rebound

Last night 7.30 used the extra hour it had to organise solid coverage of the royal commission into child abuse. That's a story ACA and TT have all but ignored.

The Glenn Dyer breakdown: Seven’s night, as it was always going to be with The X Factor performance episode in the schedule at 7.30pm. It averaged more than 1.5 million metro and over 2.36 million national viewers and saw the network move into the week’s lead after Nine’s win on Sunday night.

That also saw Seven win big in regional markets. In fact, Seven had an emphatic win in all the demos. In the 16 to 54 demo in the key 6-10.30pm zone, Ten actually had more main channel viewers than Nine did, so weak was Nine’s effort last night as it prepares for summer.
