    Is it just me or does it seem like fewer people are watching tv these past couple of years. Ratings have been consistently below average.

    Especially shortland st which used to average above 500000 each night. And so far x factor averages 300000 where it used to rate above 400000 most nights in 2013

    • Shannon Ryan

      I think it has a lot do with people no longer watching TV the traditional way. Also there just isn’t as much interest in those shows nowadays. Shortland Street could do with a big shake-up but at least X Factor is holding up against that god-awful Our First Home.
