Chart of the Day

Regan at Throng shows us the tale of Campbell Live vs The Ridges:

How did The Ridges rate compared to Campbell Live on the same day?

So far this year there have been 191 episodes of Campbell Live.  Of those, only 6 rated higher than the season finale of The Ridges. Not a single episode of Campbell Live has rated higher than The Ridgesseason premier.  That’s right: not even the much-hyped Kim Dotcom interview.

When you look at the graph on the scale of things, there’s really not that much difference between the two.  Only the second to last episode was outside of the range of Campbell Live’s average audience.

Based on these numbers, if Campbell Live can secure the sponsorship of an international motor vehicle brand then I don’t see why a second series of The Ridges couldn’t be an impossibility.

The next time you feel the urge to diss The Ridges ratings, consider what that says about Campbell Live’s.

Makes you wonder for all the Labour luvies fawning over John Campbell, how many are actually watching his bias anti-government nonsense?

More people are interested in The Ridge’s mouse than any of his shows on “child poverty”.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
