Also, quite a while since I've seen one of the soaps over 10m in the overnights. When was the last time Corrie managed 10m+ in the overnights?
Corrie last went over 10m (exc +1) in the overnights on Monday 19 March 2012, at 20:30, with 10.62m (42.3%). This was the reveal of Frank's murderer . It consolidated to a little over 11m (exc +1).

EastEnders last achieved eight figures on Monday 2 January 2012, when Pat died (10.27m/36.6%). It also consolidated to over 11m.

Keeping it more current. 16 days ago. Mr Selfridge. 9.4m.
Well, there is that - but that had been promoted non-stop for months. I was thinking of something like The Town or Homefront. Mr Selfridge is a major title for ITV, it's the day-to-day drama they need to sort out.

At the moment, its TBA.

18:00 - BBC News
18:15 - TBA
19:00 - Britain's Brightest
20:00 - Lottery
Unless they've chopped fifteen minutes off Britain's Brightest - which wouldn't be a bad idea, it does drag - presumably they'll just whack Animal Antics at 6.15.

Pointless is now at 6.15, so this thread has got it's way!

Also that week - an Outnumbered repeat is prior to Mrs Brown on Monday at 9. Holiday Hit Squad is on Wednesday at 8.

The one thing ITV seriously need, and they've failed to come up with, is the kind of long-runing series they used to have like Peak Practice that can run for thirteen weeks a year every year. All of their big shows now seem to be star vehicles so you're inevitably at the whim of the stars as to when you can do them. I've surprised they still appear not to have found anything to replace The Bill. I guess there's Law and Order but that's about it. It can be a bit cynical coming up with these ensemble pieces but if they do it right they have incredible value. I mean Peak Practice went through about a hundred cast changes and was still doing alright when they axed it (though that's not always the case, Soldier Soldier completely died when the big names went).
Yes, between them Soldier Soldier and Peak Practice probably covered the Tuesday slot for at least half the year, and they also had Londons Burning on Sundays for around three months - plus I'm sure some other shows we've long forgotten.

For me it doesn't make sense having shows like Downton Abbey and Mr Selfridge open and close with 90 minute episodes which at little extra cost could easily be expanded to two 60 minute episodes, filling the schedule for an extra couple of weeks.

I saw that rugby-affected schedule and assumed a 45-minute replacement had been found for AA and SS (as I doubt they would put a 15-minute filler there just so that they could air one of them), but there is the possibility of a 45-minute extended version of either.

EDIT: so it's a repeat of Pointless Celebs (or just ordinary Pointless? Digiguide not clear). Will do far better than what it replaced, and provide a better lead-in for B's B.

Well yes, there is Mr Selfridge. Case closed.

BBC One is more aggressive with its scheduling than commercial channels these days so that's no surprise!

The first four episodes of Britain's Brightest (the heats) are 75 mins.

The runners-up semi final (4 contestants) and the final (5 contestants) are 60 minutes.

This for 2nd February? Well, Secret Service was only meant for six episodes. Maybe Hammond should really stick to Top Gear - although I don't see what was wrong with Total Wipeout. Maybe it would have been less pressure for them when it comes to ratings if they scheduled it no later than 5pm on a Saturday.

2 February would have been Richard Hammond's (and Tim Brooke-Taylor's) 5th episode of 6.

EDIT: it just seems like they've been on longer...

Hardly, you might have a point if they were flinging the two existing shows off despite being billed in the TV guides, inconveniencing viewers, and you may have a point if the shows they were flinging off were part of a continuing series where their loyal audience would be annoyed if they were removed before they reached their conclusion. But they're not, they're two LE shows which can be watched in any order at any time and which are getting low ratings and AI figures.

The replacement will be billed in advance, so as far as most viewers are concerned, Secret Service and Animal Antics have finished, and it's certainly their prerogative to rearrange their schedule if it's not working.

Interesting that Britain's Brightest actually gets shorter as it goes on. Not really sure they needed the extra fifteen minutes.

Channel 4 and BBC3 should see a good night demographically tonight - as BBC 1&2 and ITV seem to be battling for the retired viewership, looking at their offerings. I doubt Body of Proof on 5 skews young either.

Looking over to the US for a moment. Fox's new Monday night drama The Following (which starts on Sky Atlantic tonight I believe) has launched reasonably well. A 3.1 in the demo and just over 10 million total viewers. That's a huge improvement over the debut of The Mob Doctor in the same slot earlier this season but slightly down on where Alcatraz started last year. Nervous times ahead for Fox.
The Following did better than I thought it might.

Animal Antics might reappear appear after the 6 Nations matches in its 5.30 slot, but Secret Service's final episodes will I guess be on Saturday or Sunday afternoons.

I guess the final straw were the AI figures. Definitely no second series for that then.

There's always the possibility that the break for these two shows was pre-planned, with the rugby date known about well in advance, and that they will re-surface for their final two episodes from 9 February (barring any more rugby clashes).

Then again as you said, it provides a very good opportunity to "lose" them, and perhaps burn them off in the summer.

The 2nd Feb edition of Britains Brightest is the play off between the runners up of each show. Therefore the contestants have already been introduced.

A 45 minute slot between the rugby and Britain's Brightest? That was definitely meant for Secret Service.

Animal Antics will probably be scheduled as was always intended taking weeks off when the rugby is on.

The British Public has got its way. We already told TV bosses that we were tired of hidden camera programmes last autumn when we didn't watch or particularly like ITV's Fool Britannia.

ITV have ridiculously stuck on a WWTBAM repeat right now, and it's the same next week.

Why didn't they just air the NTAs between 7.30pm-10pm tonight? OK, I know they're live, but I'm sure they could have booked the hall a night earlier. Added to that, it means Emmerdale will be hit by a clash and Coronation Street has moved to 7pm - and ITV didn't even bother to promote it after Emmerdale tonight. Considering it's running on from yesterday you'd think they'd push it more.

I think more people would have watched a repeat of a The Chase Celebrity special.

Because the NTA's should rate better on a Wednesday than a Tuesday?
Tuesdays have 3 things against it, EastEnders, Holby and the fact that it's a Tuesday!

Except that that would have resulted in two The Chase's in one night.
