From underdog to primetime competitor: Story chips away at Seven Sharp's lead—UPDATED

UPDATE: TVNZ on Seven Sharp's performance.

Cop that: reality everywhere, ratings shifts and the Campbell Live effect

Television has had quite the facelift over the past few years. Reality television has taken over the episodic drama, with its cheap production cost and malleable format, which viewers can easily tune into without any kind of backstory.

With all these changes we thought we’d do a bit of an overview of the top shows on telly to see how they’re performing amongst this difficult and ever-changing media climate.

It's also maintaining its competitive streak and trying to beat the opposition, which it did in entertainingly petty fashion last night.

But Mulligan isn’t the only one returning to the Seven Sharp fray, because TVNZ has also announced that RaboDirect, the online bank, has re-signed its sponsorship agreement with the show.
