According to TVNZ’s 2005 annual report Season 1 was a "smash hit" for the broadcaster. Although ratings varied for Seasons 2 & 3, it was still a top-rating show for TV2, and was third only to the channel's other ABC hits "Desperate Housewives" and "Grey's Anatomy". The series continued to receive respectable ratings throughout Season 4 though not quite as high as earlier seasons.
