Shift Coro back where it be­longs

The TV Guide - - MR TELLY -

Sleepy Eyes (Mr Telly, De­cem­ber 20) made me laugh about view­ers be­ing too tired to complain about Coro­na­tion Street. But all the view­ers who en­joy Coro­na­tion Street, and there are lots of us, should keep com­plain­ing about the late sched­ul­ing of this beloved pro­gramme. If TVNZ fi­nally re­alises the bar­rage of com­plaints is not go­ing to stop, then it may fi­nally do some­thing sen­si­ble and put Coro on at 7.30pm where it should be. Bring Coro home to 7.30pm.

In re­sponse to Sleepy Eyes, yes, I am al­ways an­gry about the tim­ing of Coro­na­tion Street. I have tried chang­ing my habits to suit the time Coro is on – sleep­ing and set­ting the alarm, etc, but it doesn’t work and the late time just doesn’t suit the older au­di­ence who love it. I think the pro­gram­mers must be about 15, be­cause they have no idea how to please the view­ers and they don’t re­spond with any­thing pos­i­tive or rea­son­able to the many pleas from view­ers. Con­trary to what they think, I haven’t met any­one who en­joys the con­stant bom­bard­ment of re­al­ity shows nor do peo­ple I know bother to watch them. I like to re­lax with some­thing fic­tional and en­ter­tain­ing (ie, Coro), when I switch TV on af­ter tea. In­stead there is a mis­er­able se­lec­tion of re­al­ity shows that are repet­i­tive, bor­ing and just not in­ter­est­ing at that time of night. Peo­ple are still an­gry, yes, but they’ve run out of puff be­cause the in­com­pe­tent pro­gram­mers aren’t lis­ten­ing or re­spond­ing in a pro­fes­sional man­ner. And to add in­sult to in­jury the re­peats of the catch-ups are now on in the mid­dle of the night so the poor sods who work dur­ing the week or can’t record, like me, just have to miss out.
