He's never been 17 on screen - he was at least 18 in his first scene where his parents were quite happy for him to drink in the bar whilst reprimanding Seth for jeopardising their licence.

That doesn't surprise me. I suspect the typical Breakfast viewer is up at 6.30am on their day off reading the paper (once the butler has ironed it of course! :D)


Feb 1st I believe.

No - they've lumped the two shows together so probably around 250,000 watched on C4+1, which isn't that uncommon.

It's still quite strange - the "1 million" seems to be plucked out of thin air...

And it's the cumulative audience that matter - at it's peak during the Kirkwood era the show would have been getting 4-5m across all showings. Now, at a guess, it's probably around 2.5-3m, but the...
