    how did firstline on tv3 do?

  • Brad Kreft

    Firstline didn’t rate in the top 100 programmes of the day, so somewhere below the 24,000 mark.

    Wow for Desperate Housewives! Their demo numbers went up too (topping the night)! 14.7/36.6 in 18-39 demo and 14.3/34.1 in 18-49 demo. Castle and Brothers & Sisters are neck-and-neck in 5+ (7.7/25.5 for Castle vs 7.2/23.8 for B&S). Mercy is the only Monday night show on FOUR which is not doing well in 18-39 (0.5/1.7) and in 18-49, it barely broke a rating (1.4% share though). 

    The Almighty Johnsons bested B&S in 18-39 (10.1/33.5 vs 9.2/30.2), but B&S has beaten The Almighty Johnsons in 18-49 (10.2/30.4 for B&S vs 9.6/28.6 for The Almighty Johnsons).

    Loving Firstline, it is far more Professional than TVNZ Breakfast. Rachel Smalley is an excellent journalist. Petra Bagust has killed Breakfast with her inane remarks, contorted facials, waving her arms around, and lack of skills, makes for dreadful viewing.

    Hey Dianne, were you bagging Petra over on the Breakfast Facebook page as well?

  • Dianne

    @Johston, no not me. Dont use Facebook.
