It's the internets!
Quote of the weekend papers goes to TVNZ's spokeswoman Megan Richards, who was in the Weekend Herald: "Richards said no one knew why television viewership was dropping around the world, or why TVNZ might be affected more than TV3."

Well, there's this cool new thing called the internet. You can use it with your computer, and look up info on your fave shows, and chat with other fans about the shows you like.

Best of all, when a local tv network dumps your fave show mid-season with no warning, explanation, or even possible date for its return to your screen (see Sopranos, 30 Rock, When I Met Your Mother), you can go on the internet and download the whole season of the show and watch it when you want, without ads.

The internet - its the future of television. Or so I've heard.
