New Zealand's most watched TV shows of 2012

MediaWorks showed off its new season nuggets yesterday, and TVNZ is doing the same next week. So we thought it was high time we took a look at Nielsen's TAM figures to see what shows have tickled the fancies of New Zealanders from the key demographics in 2012.

Out in the lead in all fronts is New Zealand's Got Talent, which is now coming down to the business end of the competition, and, as more evidence of the country's love hate relationship with advertising, the Fair Go Ad Awards came in second in the all 5+.

It doesn’t take much research to find articles about the changing faces of women in advertising – and yes, things are changing. But the casual sexism, the call-outs and the cover-ups have sparked a different kind of debate. Is misogynistic advertising a thing of the past, or do seeds of it still exist? To answer that, I’ve looked at different portrayals of women to see how things were then…and now.
