Anything for the film on BBC1 at 8.30, Prince of Persia?
And ITV post 10pm, Bridget Jones and the News?
Anything also for the House Party on C4?

Looks like low ratings al round 2 b honest accept for the countdown. Not surprising though as most people would have been out celebrating.

This is why I think the decision to grab the Paralympics is easily the best decision Channel 4 have made in years. Its an almost completely untapped market and lends itself nicely to Channel 4 creating some distinctive and interesting coverage. They should continue their coverage of Paralympic events. Its a good move for them and they have a strong team in place to cover it now. If nothing else they learnt from their disastrous athletics coverage which suggested that they'd brought the championships on a complete whim with no clue how to cover it or who should front it.
It's kind of a shame they've given up the 2013 Athletics rights as I personally much preferred their commentary team of Jon Rawlings, Rob Walker and Katherine Merry to the same old voices we get all the time on the BBC (with the exception of Steve Cram). Sadly though that was all overshadowed by the ridiculous and baffling choice to bring in Ortis Deeley as the front man.

They have said they'll show the 2013 IPC Athletics Champs instead, but it'll be interesting to see how much. I'd expect at least some live coverage on More4, but wouldn't be surprised if it's just an hour of highlights three weeks later at 3am in the morning.

Happy New Year everyone.

I think that Channel4 should try and capitalise on the Paralympics success by showing more Murderball competitions. It's just a very brutal and very watchable sport.
Celebrity Murderball - now that has a ring to it!

There are definately untapped opportunities to screen some Wheelchair Rugby and Basketball amongst other things, but C4 need to commit and offer preferably live coverage of GB games, or at the very least stick their highlights shows in prime weekend slots, not 7am on a Sunday morning or 2am on Tuesday nights. Indeed with T4 now gone there is no reason why they couldn't reinstate their Saturday morning sports block and run the Morning Line and other shows from 9am, rather than before 9am.

Abysmal! For some reason, people just switch off when it comes to movies on TV. Although the choice of movie was very poor.

MBB beats X Factor. That would have been unthinkable a few years ago.

World's Strongest Man clearly affected by the soaps. A shame that Terry Hollands' heat, i.e. the best performance by a British competitor so far, ended up airing against those.

I can't see tonight's final doing as well as it might have done up against an hour-long EastEnders, although there should be more viewers around tonight than last night.

New Year's Eve 2012
BBC One
00:15 - John Bishop: The Sunshine Tour: 3.87m (33.3%)
So how many primetime ITV1 programmes did this beat across the Christmas fortnight?

Even though it was midnight and there was less of a TV audience (around 19m), when was the last time we saw a 67.6% share?

Five-minute breakdown for New Year Live:

23:40 - 6.21m (37.14%)
23:45 - 7.38m (42.91%)
23:50 - 8.67m (47.84%)
23:55 - 11.08m (57.38%)
24:00 - 13.34m (67.55%)
24:05 - 13.27m (69.24%)
24:10 - 12.16m (65.96%)

It's not a great film by any stretch. The New York Times called it "irrepressibly silly" and the Washington Post labelled it an "empty-headed adventure." Not really primetime BBC One material, and it got the ratings it deserved.

It didn't beat All Star Family Fortunes or Text Santa, but it did beat mostly everything else.

Celebrity Mastermind performed much better than it has been over the past few days, although that seems to be the only show up, with all the soaps much lower than usual. That said Graham Norton and New Year's Eve Live did well.

Oh I am disappointed by that TOTP rating. I think it needed to be over 4 million (like the last NYE show in 2009) to help any (admittedly slim) chance of it coming back. Sunk by those pesky ITV soaps as always!

Seeing the sharp dip for the TOTP special, I think it's unlikely there will be one next year, which also means the Christmas edition is in danger...

Despite what some people want to believe, there is no demand for a current pop show on the BBC.

House Party on C4: 162k (1.4%)
Newsflash: on the biggest party night of the year, people are actually out partying, not sitting at home watching other people do it on C4.

Beyond awful rating for something C4 hyped up as an event. Hardly anyone turned out for it.

When they changed it to just be a short show showing the fireworks. It was originally a longer show with lots of half arsed entertainment included which would obviously reduce the average.
