The Glenn Dyer breakdown: A clean sweep for Seven last night, although there were a couple of close results in some markets. This is the last week of official ratings, but don’t expect any blockbusters.
Seven won metro and regional markets with another solid effort by Sunday Night at 6.30pm (1.3 million metro and a very strong 2.1 million national viewers). The cricket boosted Nine News, but that didn’t extend to the weak Women’s Weekly Summer Special at 6.30pm. Nine’s audience in metro markets halved from more than 1.3 million metro viewers (1.9 million nationally) for the 6pm News to 674,000 for the Weekly special. It was rating spak filla at its worst, hammy (no pun intended) and not very informative. A “special” for TV for the sake of filling an hour. No imagination at all.
