    Wow. Horrible night all-round for TV3.

  • John McCready

    Reality hits home for TV3 as X-Factor fails to find growth in viewership. So far the direction set by MediaWorks new board and management has been less than a success and the introduction of Paul Henry’s dual TV/Radio play now takes on an even greater importance. Will follow with interest and making no predictions excepting on the radio side where NewstalkZB will be untroubled, in my view.

  • Shannon Ryan

    Forget The X Factor… what was TV3 thinking with State of Affairs in primetime? Old repeats of CSI: Miami or CSI with William Petersen would do considerably better.
