Is this another coup for TV3?

TV3 has announced broadcaster and lawyer Linda Clark will referee for The Vote, a monthly series of entertaining and informative national debates on the big issues facing New Zealanders, which premieres at 8.30pm, Wednesday 27 March.

One of the country’s most respected journalists, Clark is charged with keeping two teams led by hosts Duncan Garner and Guyon Espiner in line as they go head-to-head each month in the innovative new TV3 programme. As referee, Clark has the power to interject, and a mandate to keep things moving – and keep the potentially unruly teams in line. Continue reading »

One month of Seven Sharp vs Campbell Live ratings data

TVNZ made it quite clear from the outset that despite the initial ratings snapshots for Seven Sharp “it was still too early to draw conclusions on how the show was tracking” but they’re “very happy with the way the new show is bedding in, but wouldn’t expect to have any firm idea of the trends for another month or so.”

Now that we have a month’s worth of data, we asked TVNZ to comment on how they feel Seven Sharp is performing. A spokesperson for the network told us:

“TVNZ is upbeat about Seven Sharp’s performance so far and we’re pleased with how the show is bedding in.

Seven Sharp is the most popular nightly current affairs show with all New Zealanders. Since it launched last month Seven Sharp has performed ahead of Campbell Live in terms of ratings and audience share for the 5+ TV audience.

There’s growing interest in the show and we’ve got a great base to build on.” Continue reading »

With all the talk of the government selling assets at the moment, how is News Corp’s ditching of $815m worth of shares in Sky Television going to impact on the availability of capital for investment?

Given the opportunity, would you rather purchase shares in a power company or a television company?

No doubt the Sky TV shares are going to get snapped up but the big question is, by who?  Will it be another media company?  Should TVNZ buy back in?  Or will it be another clueless hedge fund that will mine it, and its customers, for every penny they can?
