Continuing low ratings for TVNZ 1’s new Monday night drama The Brave could see it shunted off to off-peak. Monday’s episode averaged only 2.0% of the network’s core commercial demographic, 25-54 year-olds, compared to 4.8% for TVNZ 2’s Young Sheldon and 4.5% for Three’s 9-1-1.

The launch of Gordon Ramsay on Cocaine and the return of 20/20 helped TVNZ 1 to largely win Tuesday night amid fierce competition from TVNZ 2 and Three.

HD Ratings: Lonely is The Brave

TVNZ 1’s premiere of The Brave on Monday was out-rated by TVNZ 2’s comedies and Three’s 9-1-1.

HD Ratings: This Is Us Not So Us?

This Is Us may not be in its new 9.30 Wednesday home for long if its ratings don’t improve after last week’s mid-season premiere. Off the back of new episodes of  TVNZ 2’s high-rating sitcoms The Big Bang Theory and Mom, it averaged only 1.7% of the network’s target audience, 18-49 year-olds, and 2.0% of 25-54 […]
