Don't people like watching decent current affairs shows?

According to a poll conducted by the Herald Sun, Channel Ten's 6.30 p.m. with George Negus was voted among the year's television duds?

I wonder though, was it due to this show's low ratings, rather than an issue of program content?

The program is informative, and covers issues that matter, as opposed to what is on offer in this time slot on Channels Seven and Nine.

Surely (though not reflected in television ratings surveys) there are viewers out there who want political stories, and want to be informed about world issues, instead of stories about the latest innovations in bras, and the business practices of Coles and Woolworths.
