    How about The Blue Rose rating last night?

  • jamesmason

    They’re down to 115 000 apparently. Never heard of anything rating this badly before. TV3 are gonna have to pull the whole thing at this rate. They’re only up to Ep 4 or 5. Not a bag fan of the show at all myself, really can’t understand the positive reviews for the first couple eps struck me as super odd because they show I was watching felt misconceived at almost every level.

  • Drew Horan

    PLEASE DONT PULL THE BLUE ROSE!!! I blame the intense competition from MKR and The Big Bang for destroying its chances!!!

    • james mason

      I would say that might be possible if they had lower ratings right from the start. But the viewers who are watching it are simply turning it off and not watching it again. 115 000 from 260 000 whatever is absolutely the worst performance of any NZ show in living memory. That’s like 60% of their audience gone before half way through the season.

      Besides, it’s only a repeat of big bang theory, they ought to be able to compete with that.

  • Daniel

    MKR is a entertaining show.
    The Blue Rose doesn’t appeal to me whatsoever … just an ‘Outrageous Fortune’ wannabe.

    • aaronimpact

      The Blue Rose is a more polished show than Outrageous Fortune was.

  • Emmess

    Choice is doing well, after less than a year on air, they are in the same ball park as Four and Prime.
