    Loving that Campbell Live was TV3’s top rated show last night! And by god, those NCIS numbers are terrible…

    • Matt

      Regarding NCIS – Yep, but it looks proportionate among the Big 3:

      TV1 – down 40% (Our First Home: 469,440 –> Person Of Interest: 285,650), although that high figure is likely down to OFH being the finale.

      TV2 – down 38% (Random Breath Testing: 287,060 –> How To Get Away With Murder: 178,120)

      TV3 – down 44% (The Bachelor New Zealand: 262,100 –> NCIS: 143,830)

      It seems like NZers turn the TV off once it hits 8:30pm, or is there another reason?

    People are just tuning in to Campbell Live out of curiosity to see how Campbell is handling the heat.
