  • Drew Horan

    Dissapointed with the numbers for Scandal, this show deserves more viewers and I hope TV2 sticks with it!

    • Roger

      It will have something to do with the fact that they are a season behind. I, and many other fans of scandal, watch it online. I wasn’t going to wait around for them to get around to screening it. Same with Super Fun Night and Trophy Wife. My tv2 viewing stopped for the night after Shortland Street.

      • Reece

        Quite right. I only watched Shortland Street as I have sampled the other shows via ‘other channels’.

        Scandal on TV2 DOA. They sadly sealed the fate by putting it on TV One then shifting it.

      • Drew Horan

        Same I have resorted to watching it online but like to rewatch episodes as they play out on TV. The annoying thing is TVNZ should of played Scandal on TV2 instead of TV ONE when it launched here last year and how is Scandal suppose to find an audience when they launch it midway through season 2. If Scandal does not pick up more viewers in the coming weeks, Im picking it to be quickly replaced by a new season of Revenge.

  • Jeseta

    Interesting to see that Super Fun Night did quite well. I chose to skip it as I’ve only heard bad reviews and Rebel Wilson isn’t really a drawcard for me. I watched The Goldbergs instead (should also be under ‘new’) and then switched for Trophy Wife which I enjoyed also.

    • Dave

      Will be interesting to see how TV2’s lineup holds up in future weeks. Last night was boosted by Shortland Street’s “who will die” return.

      • Jeseta

        Ah yes, I forgot about that!

  • Marley

    How does a channel qualify inclusion? It looks like list includes all shows that have scored 20K+ total viewers.
    Is there a breakdown by demographic? 5+ viewer stats are a bit useless to determine how a show is performing.

    • Dave

      I think Throng and most other media outlets are limited in the stats they have access to/are allowed to publish from AGB Nielsen. But yes the 5+ figures don’t often tell the full story about a show’s success/failure, given the different demographics each channel targets.

    • Regan Cunliffe

      We publish data provided to us by Nielsen TAM. Not all channels are provided though. Only a limited number of channels from Sky are included.

  • Marley

    FOUR’s top 5 getting beaten by Choice TV’s? Ouch.

  • Karma

    I don’t usually watch the 6.00pm news (if I do, it’s usually 3 News), but last night I flicked between 1 and 3 to see what the top stories were… 3 News started with excellent on the ground coverage of cyclone hit Tonga, while One News relegated Tonga to the third story with aerial shots. Tell me again why people think the sun shines out One News’ @#$%?

    • EPISTAXIS

      3 news will always lag in the ratings even though( as you pointed out) their news coverage of the main stories are far superior.its like one critic said ages ago, Tv1 news could have “mikey havoc and a monkey” front the programme and more people will still watch for the simple reason that its Tv1 !
