One show we haven't much discussed is The Snowman and Snowdog. It has been getting lots of preview space and brilliant write ups in the quality papers. And I noticed today its got pride of place on the front of the festive RT!
When did a non BBC show ever feature on the front of the Christmas RT?
I can only think of a handful of BBC ones that have to be fair.
Anyway, I think it could produce the ratings shock of the festive season, even against Corrie and Merlin. Could it get 7m? 8m?
Look at Wallace and Gromit 4 years ago - 14.4m on the night, 16.2m official (24m inc +1*)
(* plus 1 week, that is...
It's actually the very first time a non BBC show has been on the cover of the Christmas Radio Times. Not owned by the BBC anymore either.
