Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: X Factor winning everywhere, except in Melbourne

Interestingly, Winners & Losers had more viewers than The X Factor in Melbourne, which goes against the national pattern. Is it because W&L is set in Melbourne?

The Glenn Dyer breakdown: Seven’s night because of The X Factor results episode which had just under 1.5 million metro and more than 2.3 million national viewers (down a little from Monday night). Winners & Losers followed X Factor and averaged 1.224 million metro and more than 1.8 million national viewers in another solid performance.

Interestingly, Winners & Losers with 355,000 had a few more viewers than The X Factor in Melbourne which had 350,000. Because W&L is set in Melbourne? Nine News in Melbourne with 402,000 viewers also had more viewers than X Factor. In fact Melbourne has been the only market in Australia that The X Factor hasn’t really dominated. By way of comparison, the program had 500,000 viewers in Sydney last night which made it easily the most-watched program nationally.
