5-O Not ‘Til ’15 But Sons Due Soon

Hawaii Five-O fans will have to wait until at least next year to see new episodes on TV3 but the network is looking to fast-track two of its most popular US dramas, Sons of Anarchy and The Blacklist. The irony for Five-O fans is TV3 is holding back the ’60s crime reboot until it can […]

HD Ratings: Golf Comedy Reverses TV3’s Rough Patch

Replacing Crisis and the latest season of Hawaii Five-O with an 18-year-old Adam Sandler comedy helped to stop the ratings rot for TV3 on Tuesday. Indeed, week-on-week in peak-hour TV3 was up in all the key demographics, and notably so with viewers aged 18-39, 18-49 and 25-54. Over two hours Happy Gilmore averaged 4.3% – […]

HD Ratings: TV3 Averts Catastrophe With Crisis

Crisis improved in its second week for TV3 but Tuesday’s episode still rated poorly and even was beaten by lead-out Hawaii Five-O in some key demographics. Even if the conspiracy thriller wasn’t such a dire drama, it would still be a hard sell given it’s up against the tail end of TV2’s  top-rating My Kitchen Rules. […]
