    Good to see the ratings have gone up for X Factor NZ ….I think when the live shows start on Sunday the ratings will double, who can resist a live show? :)

  • h.lua

    hmmmm tv3 seem to be reverting bak to having no key demographic i mean a fishing show then the simpsons, 3news and then x factor? next sticky tv will be bakk on 3 along with hey arnold and rugrats, shows like the simpsons and x factor shuld axually be on four in opinion

    • Reece

      Returning New Simpsons & New Family guy to TV3 were signs they were getting desperate for content despite their demograhic change. The problem with four though is that it hasnt made a big dent despite relaunching the station for a third time.
