Who can blame TV One for dumbing down its programming when top dramas on TV3 continue to languish for the audience they deserve? Monday’s Homeland drew a third to a half of the viewership that tuned into TV2’s Grey’s Anatomy. It averaged 4.0% – 6.0% of the key demographics compared to Grey’s 8.5% – 11.2%. […]
