    There isnt to much of a difference in ratings for a wednesday compared to any other time of year except for TV2 from 7PM to 8.30 PM, and as for the Tennis just let it go to sky.

  • somebody

    How much of our tax payers money does TVNZ waste to pay for the Tennis that only a misley 93,000 people want to watch?   Although Toni Street did look quite hot in that purple tennis outfit.

    Can you tell me if The Bachelor is coming back on NZ tv in 2011?
