Dallas is a switch-off
Ratings: Dallas takes a dive in the ratings -but will numbers improve with Timeshifted data?
Updated: Dallas averaged a dismal 206,000 last night. Nine will be looking to Timeshifted results in a week’s time for it’s real performance, if it doesn’t move it in the meantime.
Dallas was not the only concern last night. Much bigger problems exist at TEN with I Will Survive on just 338,000. By now TEN should have bumped the show in its schedule, but as many are asking -“what have they got to replace it with?”
Wednesday was an easy win for Seven with 33.4% then Nine 22.5%, ABC 20.8%, TEN 17.1% and SBS 6.2%.
The X Factor was again #1 with 1.54m for Seven then Seven News (1.29m), Today Tonight (1.15m), Criminal Minds (1.02m), Home and Away (995,000), Deal or No Deal (530,000) and Covert Affairs (487,000).

ABC News continues to win its timeslot as an alternative to lighter content with 1.12m for ABC1, then Gruen Planet (917,000), Qi (774,000), 7:30 (750,000), Randling (495,000), Would I Lie to You? (420,000), Paralympics highlights (319,000) and At the Movies (312,000).
There were barely two performers for TEN being Puberty Blues (728,000) and TEN News (702,000) but TEN was again in fourth place. Modern Family was 519,000. The Project 6pm (376,000) and I Will Survive (338,000) both trailed The Bold and the Beautiful (407,000).
