America'sCupPeterWilliamsTV One will be screening the first race of the America’s Cup competition where Team New Zealand actually has an opponent.

Emirates Team New Zealand is set to line up against Luna Rossa this Sunday morning NZT in a round robin race – the first time the Kiwis have faced an opposing team on the water since the competition got underway on 8 July NZT.

Presented by Peter Williams (pictured) from TVNZ’s Auckland studios, the sports special will cross live to San Francisco Bay for commentary by ONE NEWS Yachting Correspondent Martin Tasker and yachting personality Peter Lester. Continue reading »

Season 3 of The Almighty Johnsons on TV3 hasn’t gotten off to the best of starts.  The debut last week was the lowest rating episode the series has ever had but last night appears to have unfortunately beaten that record as well.

The average audience for last nights episode was only 114,830 viewers, considerably down on the 194,000 which was the season average per episode in 2012.

The move to a new night coupled with an aggressive move by TVNZ to put superhero drama Arrow up against it just hasn’t helped.  In the new timeslot, Arrow drew an average audience of 290,610 which was well up on the 211,850 that the finale of Once Upon a Time had last week.

houserules_s1ep1I apologise for the somewhat misleading headline as doubling something tends to sound rather impressive.  The reality is that it is quite easy to double a very small number.

Last night’s episode of House Rules on TV3 drew an average audience of 201,930 viewers, up 93% on Tuesday where the show only managed 104,450 against TV2’s M10 Dream Home. Continue reading »

The David Bain story on 3rd Degree finally delivered ratings to TV3 but as we suggested based on the poor form of the rest of the program that has been delivering an average audience that is more than 100,000 viewers less than the show it replaced, that those ratings were a one off.  It appears we were correct.


Next week, The Vote segment of the program will delve into the issue of whether or not we should stick with the Monarchy.  We can’t hardly wait… Continue reading »

april-dexter-home-and-awayWhile I originally expected this to be at 5:30pm on TV One, it should be somewhat comforting to Home and Away fans that the timeslot is still going to be the same, albeit on a different channel.

TVNZ is thrilled to announce that Aussie soap Home and Away will launch weeknights from Monday August 19 at 5:30pm on TV2.

Jeff Latch, TVNZ’s Head of TV ONE and TV2, says: “We’re delighted to give Home and Away fans what they want with this fantastic weeknight timeslot. They won’t miss an episode as the first-rate storylines continue on TV2 from August 19.” Continue reading »
