Monday saw TV3 replace Story with their special interview When Hilary met Oprah. According to Mediaworks, it delivered the best ratings TV3 had had at 7pm since the launch of their new current affairs program in the key demographic. However, their use of cume was questionable.

The interview rated with an average audience of 199,550 viewers. 13 episodes of Story have had larger audiences.

For the rest of the week, Story had an average audience of 164,467 viewers per night, a drop of 2% on the previous week. With Monday included in the current affairs numbers, the average audience for the four nights were up 3% on the previous week to 173,253.


Friday’s episode of The Goldbergs delivered yet another low for TV3 with the average audience diving to on 39,280 viewers. This contributed to the weekly average audience at 7pm being dragged down 2% to 146,458 viewers per night.

Seven Sharp was down 2% to an average audience of 412,198 viewers per night.

Year on year, TV One was up 1% on the same time last year and up 25% on 2013. For TV3, the stark figures continued with a 15% decline on 2014 and 34% lower than 2013.
