Glenn Dyer’s TV ratings: Nine wins the night in spite of House Rules

House Rules might've been the most popular show on TV last night, but it wasn't enough to put Seven on top.

Nine’s night in metro markets, despite Seven’s House Rules topping the most watched list and The Voice again fading. But in the regions it was Seven’s night in a close one, with the ABC a solid third (Nine was second) and Ten a distant fourth it its main channel share, down to just 7.4% (against 11.6% in the metros). Ten remains solidly on the nose in the regions.

Seven’s House Rules had 2.347 million national/ 1.492 million metro/ 855,000 regional viewers and was over 540,000 in front of The Voice which had 1.801 million national/ 1.271 million metro/ 530,000 regional viewers. Masterchef Australia had 1.325 million national/ 994,000 metro/ 331,000 regional viewers. Sunday night’s Kids version of The Voice out-rated the normal episode last night by nearly half a million viewers in metro and regional markets. That’s a telling margin for the normal episode’s future.

    Do you know, or does ANYBODY know, what time zone the commercial channels are using?
    Their start and end times for programmes, as promulgated in the media and online are fanciful (to say the least) and bear no resemblance to the ACTUAL times.
    Understand that it is possibly a ruse to keep you on their channel, but it is extremely frustrating and counterproductive. It stops me watching something I’d like, because it will run overtime and make another programme unwatchable due to having missed the start.
