john-campbell-2013-300After a week of gunning for the Prime Minister over his recollection of a phone call, John Campbell played on the coined phrase about New Zealand media in his introduction to Friday’s show, referring to it as Knucklehead Live.

An average audience of 306,630 viewers tuned in to Campbell Live compared to 297,190 for Seven Sharp on Friday giving TV3 its third ever win in the 7pm current affairs battle.

Friday night’s rating for Seven Sharp saw TV One down more than 100,000 viewers on what had been a rather impressive week for the new show which had seen one of its highest rating episodes since the week the show went to air.
