HD Ratings: Heartbreak Island Wins Hearts

TVNZ 2’s Heartbreak Island is winning the hearts of 18-39 year-olds and household shoppers with kids.

HD Ratings: Coro St Catch-Up Runner-Up to Re-run

Despite a month-long publicity build-up, Sunday’s Coronation Street recap special didn’t win its slot in the core commercial demographics. The two-hour broadcast compressed 18 months of key storylines to bridge the gap between Friday’s primetime episode and tonight’s. It spearheaded TVNZ 1’s massive catch-up with the UK, which continues this week with the network screening […]

Not So Hopelessly Devoted …

Three is adding an episode of Lost & Found to tonight’s schedule and pushing back the Olivia Newtown-John miniseries, Hopelessly Devoted to You, to 9.30. I haven’t yet seen the ratings for last night’s premiere of Hopelessly Devoted but they must have been dire for Three to make such an 11th-hour change to its schedule. […]

Last Monday’s DWTS lost to time-slot rival My Kitchen Rules in all the core commercial demographics, averaging 6.2% of Three’s target audience, 25-54 year-olds, versus MKR’s 7.7%.

HD Ratings: The Coast With the Most

  TVNZ 1 blitzed the competition last weekend with its new-look Sunday night schedule, which cut back Sunday to half-an-hour and launched season three of Coast NZ midway through TVNZ 2’s season two premiere of Survivor NZ.

Three Coy About 2018 Schedule

Three has used the revival of Dancing With the Stars to tease some of its 2018 highlights. The network’s holding back from a full announcement until February, which means it will be bombarding viewers with movies and reality shows over January. Today it confirmed the return of signature series like 7 Days, The Project, The […]

HD Ratings: Demon Dancers Outfoxtrotted

TV3’s season finale of Dancing With the Stars out-rated TV2’s The Voice Australia but not Sunday’s exorcism scoop on TV1. DWTS averaged an impressive 5.0% – 8.9% of the commercial demographics but couldn’t match Sunday’s 6.9% – 11.0%. The Voice averaged 4.8% – 7.1% and beat DWTS in the final half-hour. From 8.30, TV2 dwarfed […]
