    poor old story eh. whats gonna happen.

  • K

    I watched Story last night, first segment was not bad but the lighter stuff then on was a bit boring. I like the Panel on the Paul Henry show..if the second part of the show was 1 or 2 guests in studio with more interesting opinions than Garner ( wouldn’t be hard! ), I would watch more often

  • Shannon Ryan

    Story destroying TV3 evening share more than Campbell Live ever did. Duncan Garner is TV poison.
