    TV3 has obviously had the better month. Note that TV1’s statistics are based on ratings a year ago, and only seem to suggest that they’ve picked up a few more retirement homes. The bulk of advertisers on the other hand pay big dollars for TV3’s demographics though.

    Why doesn’t AGB just release all the figures and we wouldn’t have to bother with all this waffle.
