There was an article in the Herald at the end of last year about Coronation Street’s move to Friday and how TVNZ claimed the change had prompted “very little feedback”. The reasoning was for declining year on year ratings. The fact that we’re 18 months behind the UK is one thing but there is another element to this which seems to have been overlooked – The lead in: Seven Sharp.
In 2012, the average audience leading in to Coronation Street on TV One was 447,118 viewers. There was a 3% drop in viewers, resulting in Coronation Street having an average audience of 435,312 viewers per episode. Continue reading »

Not only did the news article (published at 10:43AM) fail to state the correct version of events and date of the incident but it directly misled the public on the casualty count at the crime scene.

English village changing name to honor Game Of Thrones
The Radio Times is reporting that the rural village of Kings Langley – a civil parish in Hertfordshire, England – will temporarily change its name to Kings Landing to mark the release of Game Of Thrones’ Season 3 DVD set.

We’re a week into the new year already! 50 weeks to Christmas… Did you catch the new Paul Henry Show trailer yet? Are you done waiting for all the regular shows to come back? I find it interesting that while we suffer with a bit of a vacuum, the US are still screening new episodes.
As always, the floor is yours to discuss whatever you want to do with TV.
