This 7% increase on last week gave The Paul Henry Show it’s highest weekly average audience since the show began.  Tonight saw a 14% increase on the previous week.

Helped along by a 4 day week, Seven Sharp delivered its highest average audience since the show began with 450,593 viewers per night.  This was up 4% on the previous week and 11% on the previous year.

Campbell Live enjoyed a 12% rise from the four nights to an average audience of 267,223 viewers per night.  While a 12% gain is an achievement one should be proud of, it was still down 28% on the same period in 2013.
