    what was NZGT’s 1st show’s ratings last year? any1 know?

    • Reece

      934,82. The demogrphics would be interesting though to see the difference. Surely NZGT is more old skewing?

      • Drew Horan

        Thought X Factor would atleast rate at the 800,000 to 1 million mark within the 5+ demo. If it had screened on TV2 things would of been different.

        • Reece

          Agree with that statement. I think TV3 would have wanted more (600,000 at least) based on NZGT’s premiere.

    I think TV3 will be happy with the ratings for X Factor NZ :)
