Older and wiser

The TV Guide - - MR TELLY -

One of my TV high­lights of the past year, at least at the time, was TVNZ’s de­ci­sion to jump ahead with episodes of Corona­tion Street to al­most catch up with Bri­tain. I thought this showed a re­newed com­mit­ment by TVNZ to Coro. How wrong was I? De­spite words to the con­trary, TVNZ con­tin­ues to treat Corona­tion Street and its view­ers with con­tempt by rel­e­gat­ing this show to a late times­lot, at a time when most peo­ple are head­ing off to bed. If TVNZ re­ally cared about Corona­tion Street, as it claims, it would screen it each week­night at 7.30pm. I would love to see that in the New Year. Why does TVNZ con­tinue to treat Corona­tion Street view­ers so badly? Is it be­cause we are per­ceived as old? Young peo­ple ap­par­ently don’t watch reg­u­lar TV any more. So, TVNZ, why not treat your loyal view­ers bet­ter even if they are a bit older than you would like?
