Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings — a quiet night for all

It wasn't a great night for any network, but Channel 7's reality TV shows were still the worst programming on offer.

A weak night. Nine won Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Seven won Adelaide and Perth. In regional markets it was almost a tie in All People between Nine and Seven, with the former just edging out the latter in the main channels. The ABC was a dominant third, with Ten a weak fourth, as in metro markets.

ABC1’s Upper Middle Bogan (1.024 million national/ 687,000 metro/ 337,000 regional viewers) and It’s a Date (878,000 national/ 584,000 metro/ 290,000 regional viewers) stood out for originality — audience levels were down 150,000 to 200,000 on last week. If it hadn’t been for these two programs last night would have been a wasted night.
