Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: news leads the pack in summer ratings

We're well and truly into the summer ratings period, with the cricket the only TV event guaranteed to bring in viewers.

When the 6pm news programs rate highly, you know the rest of the night was pretty weak –  that’s the first week of summer ratings for you. But at least the test cricket returns to Nine today, as well as ABC radio. Nine hasn’t beheaded anyone yet for leaving the stump mike open contrary to instructions, which allowed Michael Clarke’s First Test sledge of Jimmy Anderson to be heard. Seven won the metros last night narrowly from Nine, with Ten third overall and the ABC fourth. In the main channels, Seven won clearly from Nine with ABC1 third and Ten fourth, and that’s the way they finished in regional markets (overall and in the main channels).
