From the second story about Qanta still flying trans-tasman, Tova O’Brien told us on 3 News that the regional manager Qantas had been advised against giving an interview. Meanwhile, Garth Bray had an interview with Rohan Garnett from Qantas NZ on One.  

The Auckland Rail Loop policy story had Rachel Morton telling us on 3 News that Transport Ministry figures found that the rail link would remove only 2,000 cars traveling into the CBD off the road by 2041.  Based on the information in that link, One News gave an incorrect number of 1400.

Commentary

Bonus points to One News for using “Thronged” while introducing their opening story about the Cashel Mall reopening.

Verdict

Tie

Last night, National, Labour and the Greens had their opportunity to put their message across to New Zealand voters. We’ve taken a look at the numbers to see how they performed.

Overall, in the 5+, the average audience was 256,240 viewers.  This ranged from approximately 284,000 viewers when the advertisements started with National and approximately 227,000 viewers when the Greens ran their ad.  Labour sat in the middle with approximately 255,000 viewers.

Unfortunately there isn’t an 18+ category which would have been incredibly useful for this particular event.

Here is a run down of the 5 most important stories on One News and 3 News tonight.  Please leave your comments on the bulletins in the comments below.

ONE News

1. Christchurch Cathedral to be partially demolished (Joy Reid, live cross)
2. Christchurch Cathedral memories (Simon Bradwell)
3. Update for Christchurch red zone homeowners (Tom McRae)
4. Christchurch Earthquake zone information
5. Second container ship runs aground in Tauranga (Amy Kelley, live cross)

3 News

1. Second container ship runs aground in Tauranga (Emma Jolliff, live cross)
2. Whales beached on Tauranga beach (Emma Jolliff, live cross)
3. Maui gas pipeline leak (Rachel Morton, live cross)
4. Businesses affected by Maui gas pipeline leak
5. National announces youth wage (Patrick Gower)

Commentary

Christchurch was at the front of One News’ bulletin tonight with the top four stories dedicated to news from the earthquake city.  It wasn’t until the start of the second segment on 3 News that they reported on the Cathedral.  Four stories on Christchurch did seem a bit overkill.

The only story in common was the container ship grounding in Tauranga.  

One News mentioned that the beached whales in Tauranga had been refloated while TV3 weren’t sure if they had been.

Verdict

3 News

SKY NEWS NZ PREMIERE: CAMPAIGN 2011

Sunday 30 October, 8.30pm on SKY News NZ (SKY Channel 090)

Replay on free-to-air channel PRIME at 11.10pm

 

Kiwi actress Melanie Lynskey has landed a guest role in the eighth season House.

The actress, who is best known for her role as Charlie’s stalker neighbour Rose on Two and a Half Men, will play the wife of House’s (Hugh Laurie) latest patient.

Lynskey’s character will be the main focus of the episode, rather than her sick husband.

Besides her Two and a Half Men role, the New Plymouth-born actress has also been seen in the likes of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the 2009 film Up in the Air.
