TVNZ happy with Go Girls ratings

Kiwis’ favourite weekly drama, Go Girls, dominated the ratings last night with its much anticipated return. 

Last night’s third season launch secured its place as New Zealand’s 2011 favourite locally made weekly drama. In TV2’s target demographic of 18-39, the episode was seen by 37.3 per cent of the total television audience, easily winning the slot and out-rating rival channels.

Head of TV ONE and TV2, Jeff Latch, says that this milestone proves that TVNZ continues to produce dramas that New Zealanders want to watch.

“TVNZ is committed to providing the best local content possible and we are proud that TV2 is home to rating winners Go Girls and Shortland Street. Our viewers continue to demonstrate their support for local content and our hard-working commissioners continually strive to extend our portfolio of riveting drama, documentaries and factual entertainment.”

Kathleen Anderson, Drama Commissioner, says the success of Go Girls can be attributed to the efforts of everyone involved.

“The success of Go Girls is a testament to the show’s incredibly talented writers, production team and cast, as well as the ongoing support from New Zealand On Air. Kiwis have come to know and love their Go Girls and feel they can relate to the characters and the heart of the show.”

The ratings success continued at 9.30pm with the premiere of former Shortland Street star Martin Henderson’s new US drama, Off The Map. The new medical show, set in the South American jungle, is from the makers of Grey’s Anatomy, and won the slot with 29.2 per cent of the 18-39 audience.
