TV3's staple fashion and entertainment show, Xposé, will reduce its number of weekly episodes from five to three.

The show currently airs in the half hour slot between Coronation Street and Emmerdale and the three weekly episodes will still be shown at this time but will no longer appear on 3e.

A TV3 source told the Herald: "The show is in a good position on TV3 as it usually airs in between the soaps in the evening, but the show on 3e wasn't pulling in high figures, mainly because it's still a growing station within the group. The changes mean that the content will be higher as it's being spread across three shows instead of five, so there won't be as many 'filler' items."

Xposé celebrated its 10th anniversary this year and changed its line-up of presenters. The revamped show will be hosted by the trio of Karen Koster, Glenda Gilson and Cassie Stokes, with no plans to replace Ruth O'Neill who left the show last April.

TV3's full autumn schedule is set to be announced tomorrow.
