After waiting more than a year to finally deliver Broadchurch to viewers, TV One chose Mothers Day for the debut of the super sad, award winning drama. As usual, the twittersphere spoke.
Nothing says Mothers' Day like a dead 11 year old boy on the beach #Broadchurch

It’s official. TV3’s The Paul Henry Show is now on top, winning more weeks in 2014 than TV One’s Tonight and delivering higher ratings over Nightline for the same period in 2013, despite his critics.
The average audience this week came in at 124,672 viewers per episode, up 7% on the previous week compared to Tonight which was up 6% to 105,132 viewers.
This just in from TVNZ
TVNZ will release the report into allegations of political bias, the misuse of TVNZ resources and conflicts of interest at around 2:30pm this afternoon.
There will be a media statement sent by email and the review panel’s full report will be released at the same time.
After breaking two records on Thursday with the highest ever rating episode as well as the widest gap between TV One and TV3, not to mention also beating Shortland Street in the timeslot, Seven Sharp ended the week down 2% to an average audience of 436,080 viewers.
Campbell Live enjoyed an 8% increase in viewers to an average audience of 243,140 per night.
With the US currently going through the motions of deciding on their Fall Schedules, lots of juggling is being done to make way for new shows with some series suffering from a falling axe. There are some surprise announcements in regards to what has been given the chop and while some fans may be a little miffed, I can’t help but wonder how many of these shows will end up being picked up for additional series by Netflix…
Over the next few days we expect a tonne of new trailers for these new shows so stay tuned as we bring them all to you.
Here are the new shows, renewals and cancellations we’re aware of. Again, if we’ve missed any, please let us know in the comments and we’ll update the post.
