This multi-night show follows three families as they put everything on the line to help their children onto the property ladder.

Yes, I did just write that headline. Amazingly, an average audience of only 271,810 viewers tuned in for The X Factor elimination last night. While you could look at the data and say, well, the ratings for Monday night’s eliminations are up, except for last week’s show, the numbers are practically flat and certainly well down on the audition phase of the series.

So what does this mean? I’d suggest that the buzz around the show is internal. Mediaworks might be pushing the series across its vast network of radio stations but having the biggest radio audience doesn’t appear to translate into TV viewers.

Despite the negative commentary about Our First Home, TVNZ’s home renovation show has quietly continued on and delivered the typical type of over time series growth you’d expect from a reality series.
