Fair enough, I guess ITV do that with Loose Women.

I'll never understand why more people would opt to watch an ITV prison doc than Dancng On The Edge and Black Mirror combined. People moan about the country's drama output in recent years then when two great ones or on the same night, they opt to watch crap like that. Glad the Speidi thing flopped for the same reason.

Andy23 19-02-2013 17:53

Thank god for a new thread as today's discussion was awful. Yet again people unable to accept that ITV had a good rating programme. Remind me, some people think this thread is biased pro-ITV?!

George's selective memory has struck again. he seems to have forgotten that the previous 'Spy in the' series concentrated on Lions, Elephants, wildebeest, zebras, antelopes and Bees. Such pretty animals :rolleyes:
He is probably too busy catching up with 'Cornwall with Caroline Quentin'.

ITV did well last night with Coronation Street and Aylesbury scoring good figures.

Glad Channel 5 flopped last night with there poor output- caught some of the Speidi programme and it was utter garbage.

Andy23 19-02-2013 18:00

Predictably, the usual suspects smashed the 'break glass' and played the 'quality card' as they always do when ITV rates well.

Decent rating but it was apparantly rubbish programme so it doesn't count.

This card never seems to be played when discussing a BBC programme. Instead high ratings are praised above anything else even if it is the worst programme ever.

New thread! :)

The old one has made me laugh out loud today! :D

I absolutely agree. Great ratings for ITV and the penguins did very well as well. What's the problem with people?. EE is back where it was before christams. Bad news.

Lack of local news and breakfast really dented the channel today. Down to 19.2% all day share. Back to normal today.

Just shows how important news is to the channel and ITV for that matter.

But the discussion has really been laughable! No shows flopped last night both did well. Penguins was up prisons did really well. Great to see good quality factual on both sides gaining more than 40% of the audience.

I think these factual shows may be a good way to help ITV they really do well.

Who said any different?:confused: You have totally misrepresented the whole thread which was about Factual programming and how the Prison genre is one that does well for ITV. It's the third one in 3 months.
The new prison doc was down on the Strangeways series which was pointed out. Can that not be pointed out? You have no problem pointing out that EE is down.

It's like a school playground with all the BBC/ITV arguments. How old are some of you 5? And then there's the rudeness. This place is built on a foundation of insanity!

Wow! Sorry. :cry: I really did not mean to kick up a fuss. Okay it was down on the strangeways series? I don't see a problem. It's a different program.

Please don't hurt me Jake!!!! I'm a poor deranged fool really as you now know. :D

It's like my wife has joined DS! ;) "Shut up ken you stupid man!!"

BBC won't be happy with EE returning to its pre Christmas ratings, as they say even a dead cat bounces. I did notice that another FM said EE was boring at the moment so maybe people have switched away until something exciting happens.

I see that in the list of popular shows for 18-49 Let's Dance is top with even Death in Paradise getting a slot yet no Corrie, Emmerdale but that's to be expected what's not expected is EE is not even in the top ten for 18-49.

Chill mate, you are way to defensive about a bog standard tv show, relax and go with the flow.

Does that list include soaps? Turning round EE is a long term thing. I wonder where it will be in the autumn.

US Ratings
 
Good news for FOX and Sky today, The Following was up 17% on last week to a 2.7 rating among adults 18-49. That follows a few weeks of declines down to last weeks 2.4.

The CW posted a 0 share for 90210 (0.2 rating). ABC had a good night with a very strong 3.0 for The Bachelor and a 2.2 for Castle.

I'm a BBC fanboy but congrats on ITV for a great documentary, I enjoyed it and it deserved the ratings, I also watched and enjoyed the penguin doc.

It seems there making more of an event of Comic Relief by having Wednesday and Thursday programmes on BBC3, cross coverage like this is a good way of BBC3 supporting the main channel as suggested in the DFQ.

As for last nights ratings, I don't get the whole fuss over quality and expectations, both sound like average quality factual programming that got average ratings.

Ah ken I assumed that it does include the soaps, beginning to think the list exclude them be good to get clarity on it.

Regarding EE it's anyone's guess where it's ratings will be come autumn but if we have a stonking good summer which I hope will happen it will have a knock on effect on ratings for all soaps but with EE being stagnant they may witness a further decline in ratings.

Ms Newman is not cutting the mustard and EE needs a strong hand at its helm.

That's an excellent point. This sort of thing is the future of BBC Three and Four. Supporting the main channels. Some will hate this but I think it's a good move.

Oh god I am praying for it. Spend all summer down the beach hut swimming and relaxing! Oh lovely.

:)

EE was shunted onto BBC two for 2 weeks last year and had c4 London 2012 to deal with so without all that it could help I suppose.
