Glenn Dyer’s TV Ratings

Seven gained a little ground, but Nine still narrowly won the night.

Nine’s night in the metros with a small but clear win over Seven (compared with previous nights) while in the regions, Seven did better. The Block again dominated with more than 1.7 million national viewers. Seven returned First Dates (the local version) at 7.30pm with 1.06 million viewers, and 800 Words an hour later with 1.13 million. Nothing to boast about, but equally nothing there to get the sheep crook out and yank them from the schedule. In fact 800 Words proved the difference for Seven in regional markets 

The House ended with an OK 814,000 for the ABC. It is a pity the program couldn’t have shot a final new ep to take account of the horrible security fence now going up around Parliament House. Tonight the ABC returns Gruen at 8.30pm and we are going to be told that companies know a lot about us that we don’t know -- go figure. Ten’s Shark Tank sank again -- 655,000 national viewers is nowhere near enough -- it and Australian Survivor are teetering on the edge of the ratings abyss.
