the-block-nz-2013When it comes to engaging audiences with their TV shows, TV3 seem to do a better job than anyone else in New Zealand.  Take their latest project which builds further engagement with fans of The Block NZ.

TV3 is inviting viewers to reward their favourite The Block NZ team in the inaugural People’s Choice Award.

Voting is now open and the public are able to vote once per day for Alisa and Koan, Pete and Andy, Alice and Caleb, or Loz and Tom for the next seven weeks. At stake is the All-New Mazda 6; the winners of The People’s Choice Award will take home the car they drove during filming of the hit series.

To vote, viewers simply visit or click the tab at, answer a question from the show, and vote for their favourite team. Viewers can vote once per day, and every vote goes into a weekly draw to win exclusive The Block NZ prize packs. One lucky viewer will win the ultimate money-can’t-buy fan experience, including a trip to Auckland and VIP tickets to the LIVE Auction Finale. Continue reading »

nothing-trivial-300pxOther than Shortland Street, local drama really seems to be taking a hit this year with the third season of Nothing Trivial becoming the latest casualty of low ratings.

When Nothing Trivial went to air back in 2011, it debuted with an average audience of an astounding 516,260 viewers.  In 2012, that number was down 36% for the season 2 debut to 331,540 viewers.  The season 3 debut last night was down a further 28% to 238,540 viewers.  Unfortunately this is reminiscent of another couple of TV shows that have not rated so well this year.

In 2011, the average audience for the series was 377,040 viewers while in 2012, this was up 1% to 382,125.

Last night’s debut was the lowest rating episode for the TV One drama. Continue reading »

TheVoteAs someone who has been openly critical of TV3′s 3rd Degree and The Vote, it was somewhat nice to see that last night’s approach was a little different.  Having people vote on either the government or opposition position on the reported housing crisis (aka first home buyers should be able to afford to buy houses in up-market suburbs) was a much better way to do it, however the results are still unscientific and meaningless.

It was, however, the highest rating episode of The Vote to date and the second highest episode other than debut if you don’t include the David Bain episode.

Viewers voted that the Opposition offers the best solutions to New Zealand’s housing crisis during national debate programme The Vote, which screened tonight on TV3.

This month, The Vote tackled housing, asking “How do we fix New Zealand’s housing crisis?” with a special multi-party debate. Duncan Garner led the Government team, featuring Sam Lotu-Iiga (National) Peter Dunne (United Future) and John Banks (ACT).   Guyon Espiner led the Opposition team, with Labour’s Phil Twyford, New Zealand First’s Winston Peters, and Metiria Turei representing The Green Party.
