Tonight

Based on this evening’s advertisement for Tonight, it looks as though a few things might be different on the struggling bulletin – Miriama was standing in front of the screen, similarly to how the presenter of Sunday does.

It’ll be interesting to see what they are doing to attract the TV3 Audience back.

ONE News Tonight will return to its normal half hour duration from next Monday 12 January, a week earlier than originally planned.

The programmes which follow Tonight have been adjusted slightly to accommodate this.

It appears as though the move of Carly Flynn’s to TV3’s Sunrise is now hurting more than just the network’s early morning show. Since her departure from Nightline, TV One’s Tonight has made in-roads into their lead and last month passed TV3 in their key demographic of the 18-49’s.

TV3 excused the poor ratings as being due to the long hot summer which had affected viewing habits and then pointed to ratings this from week showing an upsurge.
