The Walking Dead Ravages Rivals

Tin Star Shines Brighter

Three’s struggling Tin Star has rebounded in the ratings since TVNZ 1’s pulled Criminal Minds for Doctor Foster. Monday’s episode of the British crime drama averaged 4.1% of Three’s target audience, 25-54 year-olds, to win the 8.30 hour against Doctor Foster (2.5%) and all but one quarter-hour segment of TVNZ 2’s comedy combo, Will & […]

Doctor Foster Ails From Outset

TVNZ 1 viewers don’t want another dose of Doctor Foster. The season-two premiere flopped on Monday when it drew fewer 25-54 year-olds — the core commercial demographic for TVNZ 1 — than TVNZ 2’s comedies and barely more than Three’s struggling British drama, Tin Star. It averaged 2.7% of the network’s core commercial demographic compared […]

Tin Star Not a Fast Draw

Three’s new crime drama Tin Star out-rated TVNZ 1’s Criminal Minds on Monday but not TVNZ 2’s Wentworth. The premiere averaged 4.0% of 25-54 year-olds, Three’s core demographic, compared to Wentworth’s 6.7% and Criminal Minds’ 2.5%. A dark cable drama was never going to challenge the appeal of a free-to-air hit like Wentworth but Three […]

Critical Condition: Tin Star

Tin Star | Three, 8.30 Monday ➢ “In the Canadian-set thriller, Tim Roth’s small-town police chief comes up against an almost comically evil oil company … Tin Star is odd, but intriguing. Having the cop protagonist be a recovering alcoholic is the oldest cliché in the book; but the fact he has an ominous reflection […]
