Poll: Seven Sharp so so, Campbell Live still a bit shit

The NZ Herald reports

TV One’s new daily prime time show Seven Sharp had a solid but unspectacular first night audience, according to overnight ratings supplied by NielsenTAM people meters.

Estimates for the new infotainment show – starring Alison Mau, Jesse Mulligan and Greg Boyed – were similar to those for Close Up this time last year.

Seven Sharp maintained Close Up’s lead over TV3’s Campbell Live.

Someone we all know tweeted this morning

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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