Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: a bumper ABC night for smart people

The ABC's combination of 7.30 through Q&A was thinking person's TV. A solid combination and deserved the good audiences.

The Glenn Dyer breakdown: Seven’s night thanks to the performance grand final of The X Factor which was watched by more than 1.6 million people in metro markets and over 2.5 million nationally. That pushed Seven to the lead and it will win the week, with tonight’s results episode as a bonus to nail down the week, not only in All People, but in the key demos.

Q&A last night featured Kevin Rudd and Malcolm Turnbull, pushing the program’s national ratings to close to 1.3 million (including over 900,000 in metro markets). It helped drive the ABC/ABC1 to a clear third in some markets, and the odd second in others (such as Perth). Nine and Ten were left behind by Seven and the ABC respectively.
