The Glenn Dyer breakdown: Seven’s night as the third cricket Test finished early with the expected big win by the South Africans. Even though that was coming, it still was the biggest development on TV last night.

But Ten claimed it was number one in metro markets with viewers under the age of 50 in zone one of prime time, (6 – 10.30pm). Everyone else had lots of viewers over 50? Does that mean Nine, Seven and the ABC had more viewers in the 25 to 54s and over 55 demos?
