Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: tennis continues to dominate

There's not much on, unless you're interested in tennis or competitive weight loss.

Seven’s tennis dominated last night’s viewing, easily beating Ten’s second night of The Biggest Loser  and A Current Affair at 7pm. Seven’s win wasn’t total — TV viewers in Brisbane once again showed their contrariness by preferring Nine and giving it the win instead of Seven. It drew 1.558 million national/ 1.066 million metro/ 492,000 regional viewers, and looking at it off and on last night it is easy to see why it isn’t holding audiences — no Australians of course, but the men’s result again looks like coming from one of the same gang of four (Federer, Murray, Nadal or Djokovic) while the women, who don’t rate as highly, have lost top seeds and the possible winners seem dull and colourless (and mostly come from central and Eastern Europe). The Biggest Loser added more than 80,000 viewers from Sunday night’s launch, which will bring a jolt of joy to Ten management. It managed 1.117 million national/852,000 metro/ 325,000 regional viewers.
