The GC‘s pilot ratings came in with an estimated 370,660 watching the show.
It was the most-watched show on TV3 last night, with about 30,000 more viewers than 3 News.
How does this rating compare?
You could rightly point out that both TV2 and TV ONE had more people watching their shows on at the same time.
You could wonder why more people watched The GC last night than have ever tuned in to an episode of The Almighty Johnsons, or why more people watched The GC’s pilot than any episode this season of Go Girls, or why Outrageous Fortune didn’t achieve that sort of viewership until series three.
Or why only one episode of Campbell Live in the past year (Wheee! Live snow in Wellington!) had more people tune in than The GC‘s debut.
Or why only the season finale of New Zealand’s Next Top Model last year had more people watching than The GC.
Food for thought for “unpopular” headlines.
