Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: SOS for Ten

The ABBA doco on ABC1 should have been grabbed by Ten, or made by Ten, it's the network's core strength and audience if it thinks about.

The Glenn Dyer breakdown: ABC1’s ABBA special last night was fantastic (and I was never a big fan). Excellent TV because it explained a small but significant part of Australian cultural history. And, by the way there was a nice example of a person well named for their job. The doco was edited by Charlotte Cutting, and well edited it was!

The ABBA special had 925,000 metro and well over 1.4 million national viewers, most of them above the age of 4o.
