  Dancing With the Stars won its Monday night slot in three of the four core commercial demographics but this wasn’t enough to restore the ratings fortunes of lead-out Lost & Found.

HD Ratings: Not the One You Wanted

It wasn’t just TVNZ 2’s My Kitchen Rules that ruled on Monday — so did the rest of the network’s line-up in all the core commercial demographics.

HD Ratings: DWTS Loses Monday to MKR

Dancing With the Stars may be the all-star anchor of Three’s Monday line-up but it’s Lost & Found and Inside Crime that are stealing the limelight.

HD Ratings: Big Bang Bigger Than Star Wars

  One of Hollywood’s biggest sci-fi franchises can’t top one of TV’s longest-running and most popular sitcoms. As TVNZ 2’s The Big Bang Theory builds towards Sheldon and Amy’s Star Wars-themed wedding on May 30, it continues to out-rate Three’s Star Wars season.

HD Ratings: MKR Nips at DWTS’ Heels

  Three’s Dancing With the Stars dominated the ratings for the second night in a row — but faced fancier footwork from TVNZ 2’s My Kitchen Rules than it did Survivor NZ on Sunday.

HD Ratings: The Resident Already Ailing

TVNZ 2 programmers will be hoping this weekend’s off-peak repeats of The Resident will have improved its sampling for Tuesday’s episode. The network launched the hospital drama with back-to-back episodes on Monday and Tuesday after the top-rating My Kitchen Rules in a bid to bed it in quickly for its permanent post-MKR Tuesday slot. But […]

HD Ratings: Criminal Minds Still Going Great Guns

For the last few years TVNZ 1 has been trying to find a top-rating successor for its ageing Criminal Minds. But none has rated as well, and season 13 is proving as formidable as its predecessors.

Undateables Unbeatable

TVNZ 2 has found the perfect match for Monday nights: My Kitchen Rules and The Undateables. Double-billing the two has helped it to sew up the 7.30-9.45 zone, with the duo winning the two hour-plus block in three of the four core commercial demographics. The Undateables averaged 4.7% of 25-54s, 4.2% of 18-49s and 4.1% of 18-39s. […]
