Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: see you all next year

So many questions for 2013: will Ten make it, what level of debt will Nine have and will Seven fix its black hole in Melbourne and Sydney at 6 to 7pm?

The Glenn Dyer breakdown: Another weak night, this time won more convincingly by Seven. But 44% of the audience in metro markets watched the digital channels and pay TV rather than the main channels, so weak were the offerings. Regional TV saw an even higher share not watching the network’s main offerings. In fact Seven, Nine and the ABC were more popular in regional markets than in the metros.

And of those offerings last night? Well, they remain something of a mystery but Seven won with its original programming strategy and deserved victory (and the win this week). The programming may be second or third tier, but at least some of it hasn’t been seen before, unlike much of what’s being shown on Nine, Ten and the ABC.
