you havent produced a single figure on the overall reach of ITV1 (inclusive of HD and +1) so why should we believe you on that?
If Itv+1 and Itv hd reach is up 1pct, and itv1 reach is down 7pct, it means overall itv [including hd and +1] reach is still down a lot.

Coronation street on Monday got over 10m with Lewis over 6m. over 5m for National TV Awards is good with a fantastic documentry on BBC 1 at the same time. Every program on Sunday got over 5m against strong BBC 1 programs. And ITV also won primetime last night.

ITV is not in crisis. even though you say BBC 1 has won every program at 9 O'clock doesn't mean a program doesn't have good ratings
Ive already commented on Lewis and said its doing well this series, as well as the soaps. Go back through this thread and you'll see my comments on them. Even though everything on Itv was above 5million on Sunday night, when you look at it in more detail, its not so good news. Dancing on ice got some of its worst ever ratings, family fortunes doing ok but Mr Selfridge is not quite the success Itv were hoping for. Whether or not you think crisis is the right word to descrive the situation, it is clear there is still a ratings problem going on at Itv. Viewing share, viewing reach, audiences, top talent show ratings are all down from previous years. New drama and comedies not rating so well, almost all 9pm factual is rating below 3million. With new shows, Splash ironically is one bit of good ratings [but not reputational] news from first few weeks of this year, a show which I personally tipped for success 6 months ago
