    That’s a big night for TV3. They’ll be happy with those numbers!

  • reece_555

    Yes good night for TV3 but daylight savings having an effect for TV One during the news and close up?

  • Mushj

    Tv3 seems to rock Friday nights and stink big time on Saturday, maybe that has something to do with the idea to shift older demos who are more likely to be home on Saturday’s?
