Paul Henry believes his Aussie Breakfast show will improve

Paul Henry has hit back at the critics who continue to slate him and his new Australian morning series Breakfast.

The Kiwi says that there are a number of factors at play as to why the show has failed to attract viewers.

“It’s a combination of factors, not the least of which is that there are two Goliaths in breakfast that have been there for a long time and doing a half-decent job,” he told the Mumbrella website.

“If it is truly going to evolve properly it will take a long time to do its best, but it’s a long way from its best. I would like it to be No. 1. I would like the ratings to be much, much better than they are. Do I take it personally that they’re not? Absolutely not.”

Henry is wary that the show may never catch the rival breakfast shows on Channels Seven and Nine.

“It still doesn’t mean you’re going to catch them up – it’s going to take a long time for people to find that out. It’s probably going to cost a lot in terms of advertising.

“The reality is I would hope in six months’ time, or within the next six months, we would be producing a product which anyone with a modicum of intelligence would be able to see is at least as good if not substantially better than the others.”
