Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: NRL delivers a ratings win for Nine

The combination of NRL and The Block put Nine in first place, ahead of Seven.

Ahh, the smell of linament and the roar of greasepaint as the NRL football roared back to TV screens for 2014, leaving Nine ahead easily in metro, regional and national markets thanks to the first game of the NRL season in Sydney and Brisbane and associated regional markets. The Block kicked in, as did Nine News and the tattered Footy Shows. And as a necessary antidote to all this footballism, watch Sunday Night on Seven and another story from Peter Fitzsimmons on the damage head knocks are doing to players and have been doing for years. It should be required viewing for every player in every code at every level. It will certainly be far more important than the Corby drivel aired a week ago and reported by Mike Willesee.
