Tomorrow i think around 7m as i think Text Santa will do better this year with all its promotion Via ITV,Vodafone ,Heart Radio and ASDA. EastEnders on monday is in a perfect slot and i think it will get its highiest figure for sometime.
I must say I don't think I can stomach another telethon this year!

4m I reckon for Text Santa.

Actually its TONIGHT & TOMORROW it continues right across.
So if EastEnders doesn't get a boost for these episodes then Christmas Day will be very tough for it.

I think tonight's episode is the real test. If it does well then EE should be fine for Christmas if it doesn't then it's curtains.

I agree. If EastEnders doesn't rise tonight then it won't be rising on Christmas Day.

Why? The last Thursday of late night shopping/Late xmas parties VS xmas day when many are home. Ithink Monday will quite a nice boost and tonight will see something and perhaps a high peak in the last 10mins.Theres nothing tosay EastEnders wont see its big boost on Xmas eve and beyond

Newsround currently reporting on the end of CBBC on BBC1 afternoons and states that five times as many kids watch kids' shows on the CBBC channel than on BBC1.

Hassaan13, when you report of the ratings for kids shows on BBC1 against those on CBBC, you're reporting all viewers and for kids' shows, it's kids who matter to the BBC.

Eastenders will rise on Christmas Day, whatever happens tonight. It may not rise as high as last year (overnight rating 9.9m) and it may lose to Downton (overnight 8.6m) but it will rise. Normal rules of television don't apply on Christmas Day. Viewing habits are considerably different.

Wow. Just watched last Newsround on BBC One. The end of an era... though a children's slot is no longer viable in ratings terms, it is a sad day for those of us with fond memories coming home from school in the 1980s and 1990s.

ITV Sport will be delighted with Arsenal and Man U's rivals in the second round of the ECL. Should Man U in particular become a cliffhanger, then ratings should be very high.
However, this is a poisoned chalice as if both teams, and Celtic, go out, then the ECL will become another Tuesday flopzone candidate. Yet for now ITV must be delighted with the draw.

I think there are plans to show the occasional kids show on BBC1 or BBC2 in various slots. And the BBC are very good at cross-channel promotion (and radio shows get promoted on TV and TV shows get promoted on radio).

Newsround says 1.8m kids watch CBBC at some point during the week. What percentage of all kids is this, does anyone know?

Remember, they'll only get one leg of each fixture.

Yet should it be the Man U second leg with a scoreline of 2-2 from the first round, then it will be 7 million tuning in.

Wednesday 19th December 2012 - Children 4 to 15
BBC One
15:05 - Show Me What You're Made Of: 11k (2.9%)
15:35 - What's New Scooby Doo / Shaun the Sheep: 47k (5.3%)
16:05 - Help! My Supply Teacher Is Magic: 71k (5.0%)
16:35 - Rocket Island: 61k (3.6%)
17:05 - Newsround: 107k (5.6%)

CBBC
15:00 - Horrible Histories: 49k (13.0%)
15:30 - Roy: 152k (18.1%)
16:00 - Tracy Beaker Returns: 200k (14.3%)
16:30 - Sadie J: 182.5k (10.8%)

CITV
15:20 - Kung Fu Dino Posse: 35k (6.1%)
15:45 - Dino Dan: 49k (4.9%)
16:00 - Horrid Henry: 67k (5.3%)
16:15 - Horrid Henry: 125k (8.1%)
16:30 - Almost Naked Animals: 109k (6.9%)

CBBC in the demographic thrashing BBC One, whilst CITV is alongside BBC One as well. Pretty easy to see why the decision was taken.

Of course EE will go up on Christmas Day, it always does from wherever it was in the run up.

Even GeorgeS watches on Christmas Day...

But they've plugged this show as a big deal. It should have some sort of boost. If it doesn't it'll be disappointing.

Thanks D.M.N that justifies the decision. Quite worrying how many adults watch kids TV on BBC One! Do they not know that there are other channels!

BBC One felt obliged to keep kids shows going until the digital switchover was complete as it was unfair on non digital households. Now this has happened, it seems pointless to have them on BBC One and CBBC, esp as they are dragging the main channel's audience down so much. Also it wouldn't surprise me if BBC One, whose elderly following is quite large, now take on DOND for the favours of older viewers. Could DOND, whose ratings are falling, be sunk by a stronger BBC One line up?

Would that be DOND vs Flog it! They also have Perfection.

Not a stunting schedule but it will do well for them.

Hardly story of the day, I know, but C4 News was getting closer to 700k last time I remember seeing its ratings reported here. Considering they've had a really big week (Plebgate scoop), that's a disappointing number.
More people watched the 5pm News on Channel 5.

Channel 4, prime time seems adrift. People are not being drawn to it.

My own opinion is the talent is now stale. And the formats are just them having middleclass self indulgent 'adventures'. Making Christmas, going wild, Creating huge food... whatever... I'm not drawn to it and neither are the viewers.

Considering the amount spent on these big talent formats, compared to the docs that go out at 10pm, there is no bang for the buck. The documentaries are within touching distance of them or above in viewing figures, and get a better share.

20:00 - Kirstie's Vintage Christmas: 1.28m (5.7%) , +1: 173k
21:00 - Heston's Fantastical Christmas: 1.58m (6.7%) , +1: 243k
22:00 - The Twins Who Share A Body: 1.34m (7.4%) , +1: 191k
Agree - their 'lifestyle and leisure' faces no longer feel fresh, and the ones they've recently poached, eg Mary Portas and Jimmy Doherty, haven't brought big audiences with them. Can't see Hilary Devey being ther answer either.

I've been saying for some time that C4 is in a mess, both commissioning-wise and scheduling-wise. But somehow it manages to escape the flak that ITV gets.

Twitter is not a good way to measure ratings as we seen from the ITV show, Take Me Out

Eastenders last 6 months' main storyline has all been building up to tonight's episode. If with all the build up and promotion BBC has been giving this episode, Eastenders cant get 8.5million that will be a bad rating.

Not at all, If people are talking about it.....

EastEnders is top UK Trend and has 5 others tonight
and one worldwide.

Im hoping for at least 8million but I feel it will fall short (Just)

BBC3 might see a nice boost but I think the officials could be pretty high

Twitter was eastenders mad tonight. I'm hoping for high ratings, but I think 8-8.5million will be the highest.
