Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings: another grim off-season night

Mid-week programming during the ratings off-season is a pretty dire state of affairs.

A night when those who didn’t watch TV won. Seven won overall in metro and regional markets, Nine won the main channels. The ABC was third (both overall and main channels) ahead of a weak Ten.

There were no highlights, as the figures for the most watched programs confirm. Stephen Fry’s Key To The City had 1.003 million national/695,000 metro/ 308,000 regional viewers. It was like an hour long solo version of QI, with Fry asking and answering questions about London, but without the siren for the wrong or pedestrian answer. Still no joy for Ten in the morning as Wake Up had 36,000 metro viewers and 54,000 nationally. Studio 10 managed just 30,000 metro viewers and 46,000 nationally.
