Rentaghost lasted four series too long. It just turned into a cheap pantomime. However, Grange Hill was at its peak around 1983 when you had Gripper Stebson at his worst. Yet ITV had set up its...

My guilty pleasure, wait for it now, is Jeremy Kyle. I think it can be quite amusing and actually in one case he helped a young man whose father ran away when he was six. I used to hate it, but now...

Central created Auf Pet, which you think logically would have been made by a Nothern region as its three main characters were Geordies. Granada was good, but always struck me as a bit Reithian and...

So can I, but then the amount of episodes mushroomed in the nineties as the argument was if this is popular, why not show it five times a week like Home and Away and Neighbours and then have...

A big game can pull in 1.5 million, but you can usually double that if you count viewers in pubs, where football seems to do well.

It's massive on Facebook and Twitter. I do recall someone setting up an anti X Factor page on Facebook and it only had about 1000 followers compared with 2 million fans. Actually I met my ex on...

May I have the pleasure of this dance? A very popular song in its day and someone requested it as a golden oldie on Chris Evans as they used to play it at school discos.

Couldn't help laughing at Samuel's stereotyping of ITV viewers, which does have a grain of truth in it( 65 per cent of ITV viewers are women and a similar proportion are C2DEs). I suppose the next...

Central used to have two studio complexes and was a massive player in ITV in the eighties. Now it's about as relevant to the network as Border. Sadly ITV seems to be concentrating everything in...

I agree with Steve, except for Kyle, which does give some light relief, Lorraine and This Morning are more or less the same. Soap gossip, reality show chat, medical conditions, interviews with...

The autumn of 1973 also saw Ed Stewart getting into the Top 20 as he appears on the Lynsey de Paul hit Won't Somebody Dance With Me. I don't know if this is an urban myth or not as I'm too young to...

New Tricks has always been a quiet hit for BBC One, on one occasion topping the soaps. However, cast changes and darker scripts have seen audiences falling to 5 million. I watched the one about the...

Sad to say there isn't the studio capacity in many ITV regions now. Tyne Tees used to have a studio complex the size of Broadcasting House, now it operates a newsroom in Gateshead. Regional ITV sadly...

It's lost 4 million viewers in the last four years and the Sunday editions are only getting 7 million and this series it's lost 5 per cent of its audience. The problem with TXF is it's the same old,...

Maybe in sports terms, but including general viewing I think it's pretty way down. I went out for a drink tonight when there were two matches on and it was the same old crowd watching it. Football is...

That rating last night was poor for what is the second most popular club in the country. An average of 3.7 million is poor when such a game in the noughties would have attracted 6 million. I really...
