The recording of the “audition” segment of New Zealand’s Got Talent got underway in Wellington over the weekend.

Here’s one fans’ take on what happened Continue reading »

The same skilled professionals who lambasted TVNZ7′s viewership figures have trotted out the same thinking but this time spun it as positive.

The new Shopping Channel, they say, reckons it’ll get 600,000 viewers a week.  A figure that they then stupidly compare with the viewership for the grand final of Masterchef.  If only they’d continued on with their inept analysis, their numbers would have shown them a not-so-glamourous 85,714 viewers a day, or 3,571 viewers an hour, right?

I guess we know where the Shopping Channel are advertising.

I’m planning on watching My Kitchen Rules, Death at a Funeral and The Golden Hour

The new season of My Kitchen Rules starts tonight, and this season there’s a Kiwi couple in the competition. First up tonight, though, is the New South Wales couple, Greek siblings Steve and Helen, as they prepare their three-course meal to be judged.

I got all excited that TV2 is screening Death at a Funeral tonight…and then I saw that it’s not the incredibly funny British version…it’s the US remake starring Chris Rock. Continue reading »

I’m planning on watching Grand Designs

Grand Designs returns to TV3 tonight at 7.30pm. I like watching this show on a Saturday night. I think it’s a better fit than a weeknight.

Anyway, the episode on tonight has architectural designer Lincoln, and his artist wife Lisa, wanting to build their dream home on the Isle of Wight, away from the hustle and bustle of London.

A good movie is on TV2 at 7.30pm tonight: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Continue reading »
