Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: State of Origin smashes records

The annual Rugby League State of Origin competition romped it in last night, giving Nine a huge win over its free-to-air competitors and pay TV channels.

Only one program mattered last night — the first Rugby League State of Origin game on Nine from Brisbane which was won by NSW (Yippee). So how did the ratings stack up for Nine?  Well, it was a record audience nationally (up 16% from the previous high in 2013), and new all-time highs for metro, regional markets, Sydney and Melbourne. But not in Brisbane where the audience again fell short.
