And the ratings meltdown at TV3 continues…
Story not closing ratings gap on Seven Sharp
New TV3 current affairs show Story has failed to make a dent in Seven Sharp’s ratings dominance in its first seven weeks on the air.
Story, co-hosted by Heather du Plessis-Allan and Duncan Garner, was chosen to replace Campbell Live after TV3’s owners, Mediaworks, undertook a review earlier this year which looked at ways to “improve the commercial performance of the 7pm timeslot”, in the words of group head of news Mark Jennings.
…NZers outraged at the way TV3 management killed off Campbell Live for the National Party (a claim that was not denied last night at the Ika Table Talk) have decided to boycott TV3 and that is hurting the entire network.
If the Fourth Estate are going to be mere mouthpieces for power rather than challenge it, then they don’t deserve our support.
You reap what you sow.
