The Glenn Dyer breakdown: A night that was best avoided, except for Nigella. Her program, Nigellissima gathered 615,000 metro viewers on ABC1 at 8.30pm and 889,000 nationally. American Idol bored for Fox and the Murdochs on Ten and garnered 580,000 metro and 775,000 national programs. By way of comparison, Nine’s production of The Voice last year beats Idol for glitz, pace, a bit of drama and sheer entertainment.

Seven’s repeat of Legally Blonde grabbed 981,000 viewers nationally from 7.30pm and 609,000 in the metro markets.

    Thanks for the audience stats Glenn.
    On Nigellissima:
    I’ve enjoyed Nigella’s twinings tea commercial, but had never watched her cooking shows and wondered what all the fuss was about.
    Now I know!
    After seeing a Nigellissima episode recently I’m converted. Nigella’s unique narrative style captivated me. Although I felt somewhat like a voyeur watching her tantalise her taste buds and mine as she shared her open relationship with food. It was a spell binding experience.
    The show is like drinking from the Nile – Je Reviendrai(I shall return).
