Wow-Corrie and CBB got the ratings they deserved last night. Superb telly. Much higher than I was expecting for both. I only expected Corrie to just about clear 10m considering how recent episodes have rated. I really underestimated the popularity of Becky. For a character who has only been in the show 6 years to get a boost like that is fantastic. Hopefully it will continue with the big affair reveal & trial next week.

Word of mouth and internet seemed to boost CBB last night, because there was no TV promotion or newspaper coverage I would have thought. The episode really proved to everyone that CBB has plenty of life left in it.

Excellent for Corrie. Did we feature the wrong episode on the RPG? It looks like we might have done.


Ouch. Not a great peak! Looks like viewers are voting with the ultimate gadget of all... their remote controls.
Perhaps they're using the gadget Sky supplies them with and are recording it or watching on Anytime or Anytime+?

What was that timeshift for American Horror Story, 500+%?

You've hit the nail on the head there. I love it when, against all odds, a good show pulls through and rates well.

If you think there was no newspaper coverage you obviously don't read the Desmond Press - Express and Star are full of it

The above is the tape-checked average between 8.30-8.55pm, by the way, as the episode finished 5 minutes early. The full slot average was 11.2m, 43% (incl +1) peaking with 12.4m. Corrie's 7.30pm episode had 10.6m, 45%.
That will probably timeshift to over 12 million and will be the top rated soap episode this year.

Great rating for it considering the "lack of snow" and the such like this year. Corrie seems to do better for "big events" than EastEnders does, as shown a few weeks ago.
That's a great rating. I guess it will spark the debate about how can Corrie reach this but EE can't (with such significant episodes over the past month)
An excellent rating for Coronation Street and better than EastEnders' ratings featuring Pat's departure. They'll be dancing on the cobblestones in Wetherfield!

Now who was it around here that said scheduling of the Monday episodes just made Becky's departure look like a regular episode, so it wouldn't be an event? Shows what we know!

I guess nothing could have been done about it, at short notice, but 5 would have massively benefitted from putting BOTS right after the main show.

Not really. I've had a flick through at work and there wasn't as much coverage for CBB as I was expecting. It's not even been on the front pages some days. In any case the silly headlines in the Star probably has a negative effect if anything.

CBB is having to work hard for it's 2.8mil. It ain't got many friends in the publishing world now, that's for sure.

CBB deserved it's ratings.

Corrie did very well but it would have been nice to see Becky ordering her last snake bite!

Just seen that CBB had 370k on +1. That's a new record for the timeshift service.

It proves word of mouth helped it a lot last night as news spread that it was a big episode.

Poor opening for Skins. Have to wait for timeshift figures though before writing it off.

Really pleased to see MBB up 500k on the week, which should push it back into the high 6s in the official ratings. It was a cracking episode.

Nice to see TRB lifting slightly and not falling further. Still dire of course, but ITV does much worse in primetime and more often.

That Corrie rating is an eye opener, even if I say so grudgingly. Didn't see that coming anyway. I don't really watch, so had no idea it was "a big episode" last night. But presumably the tabloids, chav mags and daytime fluffer shows were all full of it and building it up.

Was there also snow anywhere last night, perchance?

There was talk about the scheduling of episodes in the other thread about how ITV should put the soaps back on Sunday. I REALLY don't want soaps on Sundays as I like a day free from them. If ITV put good shows on people will watch like The X Factor, Britain's Got Talent, Downton Abbey etc.

22:00- Skins: 459k (2.6%) , +1: 65k
Poor start for Skins, although it has been available online for some time already. It had a lot of trailers over the past few weeks on TV and in cinema adverts so looks like the last series may well have done some lasting damage to the brand. Perhaps it will increase as the online viewers start watching it live next week. Personally I thought last night's ep was much better than any of last year, so at least the show has a chance of increasing now.

Previous Skins overnight ratings:

Series 1 premiere - 1.37m (9.41%) [+1 275k]
Series 2 premiere - 884k (5.9%) [+1 160k]
Series 3 premiere - 665k (4.1%) [+1 169k]
Series 4 premiere - 938k (5.1%) [+1 164k]
Series 5 premiere - 823k (4.6%) [+1 113k]
Series 6 premiere - 459k (2.6%) [+1 65k]

Series 1 average - 822k (5.7%) [inc +1 1.1m]
Series 2 average - 663k (4.3%) [inc +1 805k]
Series 3 average - 707k [inc +1 890k]
Series 4 average - 746k (4.1%) [inc +1 924k]
Series 5 average - 503k (2.8%) [inc +1 634k]

There must be some disappointment at ITV that with an 11.5m lead in and 2.8m competition on BBC1, Above Suspicion could only muster 5.7m - only 500k ahead of Mrs Brown which had a 30 minute/2.8m lead-in handicap.

I do find these La Plante plodders massively dull and procedural now, it's "crime drama by numbers".

It seems the viewers agree... (cf: 6m+ for Birdsong, c10m for CTM, 10m for Sherlock, 10m for that thing in the stately home)

This is worth a read.

TV viewing and ad exposure remained high in 2011

This demonstrates the increase of digital recorders in the home; in fact 50% of UK households now own a Sky+ box or device capable of recording live TV.
As 50% of homes have pay TV and the vast majority of those have Sky+/V+ boxes, the figures demonstrate how low PVR ownership is in Freeview homes.

They seem to be the ones watching the majority of ads.

ESPN's ratings are about to go through the roof...for one weekend only:

ESPN is to broadcast the first freely available Premier League match on Freeview as part of a weekend promotion to drive awareness of the channel.

The FAPL leaders Manchester City will play Chelsea on 4 February, with the match available to a potential audience of 20 million, as part of the ESPN Free Weekend which will open up the channel to all BT Vision, Sky and TopUp TV subscribers, as well as Freeview homes.
Source: Broadcast.

Got to love Disney. That's one of their best games of the season and they are giving it away FREE.

Sky would probably give you Bolton v Wigan at a push and even that would break their hearts. It sure as hell wouldn't be available to Freeview users either.

Actually looking at the fixture list... Broadcast are wrong. It's City v Fulham that weekend. Still a decent freebie though.

Hate to say it, but I did call that Corrie was going to get a big rating I predicted it would surpass last year's Valentine's Day episode (its highest 2011 rating) was I right? I should get involved in this rating lark a bit more often!

Well the Dancing On Ice twist is revealed. Will it help it against Call The Midwife and Top Gear?

http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tv/s101/...tle-twist.html
That's one spoiler from The Voice The X Factor didn't really get around too.

Another idea ripped-off from SCD - have the ITV producers no original ideas of their own at all ? The BBC should sue
Can't recall Strictly doing anything like that. There has been a lot of crap written here about Dancing on Ice over the last few days (I don't really understand why BBC fanboys are so threatened by it!). Yes, it gets quite a bit wrong (the ads, Christine Bleakley, the line up isn't great!) but as a competition and a format it is in no way as inferior to Strictly as some people here like to make out.

If you think there was no newspaper coverage you obviously don't read the Desmond Press - Express and Star are full of it
He said "newspaper".

Poor opening for Skins. Have to wait for timeshift figures though before writing it off.
The trouble with the two series cycle is I think most people wrote it off last year. The premiere seems to have been seen as an improvement on last year, but can't see it building in the overnights to much more than 600,000 throughout the series - which we shouldn't forget is actually still pretty damn good for E4, but not the 800,000-1m you expect from their drama.

Perhaps Sky don't need to give away matches?

ESPN must be struggling. I've just been given two months free, with no contract. So I'm getting all their matches FREE.
