    How is top gear new?!

    outback wildlife rescue? Come on people.

  • regan

    Based on previous ratings periods it is new.

  • Ilovemyballs

    I thought it was new because it’s a new series.As in 2010 series.Anywho thank Homer no one’s watching “This Is Not My Life’ crap.I think NZ’s collective IQ has just been bumped up a little for that.

  • Carol

    I don’t understand how Top Gear can be new either Regan.  You say based on previous ratings periods it is new, but it played last Sunday, in the same timeslot, so in that case if it is a new ratings period shouldn’t every show be new, such as The Middle?

  • regan

    I’ll get someone to take a look at it but I believe the “new” is based on that it didn’t appear in the previous weeks report. I may be wrong so I’ll try and get some clarification. 🙂

  • reece_555

    Last week it ended at 8.30 this week 8.40 therefore new ratings slot. The trend I have noticed is if a show starts or ends at a different time from the previous week, it qualifys as a new slot.

  • regan

    That’s probably the reason.
