I think this autumn should see an improvement for ITV, with DA, IAC and the RUWC, which should England do well, could deliver IAC sized audiences. Also getting all the England home games in the SIx...

Thank goodness, those nasty, negative posts have been removed. It was mudslinging and cat calling that had nothing to do with ratings.

Channel 5 under Viacom should really now look to axeing BB, it's clear the show is in its death throes now after the last series, and keep the two CBBs, which are still good for over 2 million. (...
