Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Home and Away finishes strong

Home and Away remains perhaps the most crucial program in Seven's nightly ratings push.

The Glenn Dyer breakdown: Seven’s night, with a solid win in metro and regional markets. Home and Away failed to crack the million metro viewers for its last program of the year. But the 996,000 people in the five metro markets was close enough (and 1.5 million nationally) and pushed Seven to a clear win on the night with the 90-minute finale for 2012.

Home and Away had 981,000 viewers this year Monday to Friday, down from 1.039 million last year and 1.021 million in 2010. That fall in part reflects the impact of Nine running The Block and Big Brother at 7pm during their seasons, and fall in Seven’s News and TT ratings in Melbourne since August.
