All-day shares:
BBC One - 22.3%
BBC Two - 5.1% (BBC HD: 0.2%)
ITV - 17.9% (inc +1: %)
Channel 4 - 4.8% (inc +1: 5.6%)
Channel 5 - 3.75% (inc +1: 4.1%)
Others: 46.15% (exc +1s for ITV/C4/C5: 45.0%)

Primetime shares:
BBC One - 20.3%
BBC Two - 7.3% (BBC HD: 0.4%)
ITV - 21.6% (inc +1: %)
Channel 4 - 4.2% (inc +1: 4.8%)
Channel 5 - 4.1% (inc +1: 4.7%)
Others: 42.5% (exc +1s for ITV/C4/C5: 41.3%)

This might be a first: Channel 5's +1 service matches Channel 4's in primetime (0.6% share).
There we go again, Daytime really propping the channel up. And then BBC Two it's now the other way around. Lack of daytime really hurting the old girl. Track cycling they have next week. I'm impressed that they seem to be showing allot of niche sport now BBC two doesn't have daytime.

We knew the channel would be badly hurt and it has been. but 5.1% is not a disaster. I thought it would be lower.I wonder if BBC Two will ever get a daytime budget? I think not.

Arsenal join Liverpool in exiting the FA Cup; I doubt ITV will be overly delighted about that. They still have the two Manchester clubs and Chelsea and will be hoping that two of the three will be kept apart until the final and none of them suffer an upset.

Here's the ratings for every single episode of SNT. Hold on to your hats. All ratings are Officials from BARB. It's in the spoiler because it's big.

Spoiler


Hmm? I have a strong belief that they ended it at the right time. I think it's a risk and it could go ether way. it's ether going to bounce back or continue on the trend of a slow decline. Can't say the rating for the last series were amazing.

I don't know. I would have preferred Ant and Dec to actually use some imagination and come up with something new. My gut feeling is that it's going to be steady. Who knows it coild blow us away.

I think they could do better with their choice of repeats. The Sign Zone is there for its PSB value, fair enough, but The One Show at lunchtime is unimaginative and is not even drawing a 2% share. For one thing, it probably shares a large audience crossover with the behemoth which is the 1pm news. Alas it must cost almost nothing to repeat so it may stay.

I feel they should dig out some more factual gems from the archive on weekdays: history, travel, science: mix it up a bit more. You're right about the sport - there is much more scope to ditch the entire schedule and show more coverage now, which is a positive. Budget constraints mean a proper first-run daytime schedule for BBC Two, to run alongside BBC One's, is a very distant prospect, I feel.

(by the way, I've now added ITV inc +1 shares to my post, and corrected the Others)

I think the BBC Two schedule is a work in progress to be honest. They will change it around without a doubt.

If it was me I would go all out factual repeats, sport coverage and current affairs and drop the one show and mastermind repeats. It's all going to probably rate quite low so why not go super niche! I would like to see more BBC four and maybe bbc three docs repeated as well.

Great Night Out
Series 1 performance (exc / inc +1)

ep 1 (11/01/13): 3.41m (13.9%) / 3.75m (15.2%)
ep 2 (18/01/13): 2.95m (11.5%) / 3.21m (12.4%)
ep 3 (25/01/13): 2.57m (10.5%) / 2.80m (11.4%)
ep 4 (01/02/13): 3.01m (13.3%) / 3.22m (14.2%)
ep 5 (08/02/13): 3.23m (14.1%) / 3.42m (15.0%)
ep 6 (15/02/13): 3.43m (15.3%) / 3.61m (16.1%)

Series average: 3.10m (13.1%) / 3.34m (14.1%)

Episode 3 took a knock from the CBB final but otherwise it actually grew steadily after the inevitable dip for episode 2 which nearly all new shows suffer, and it finished on a series high if you exclude +1. I think the signs are good enough for a recommission, just about.
EDIT: the demos will decide it, of course. If I can manage it, I'll find some demo ratings.
Would be interesting to see the demos as in theory I'd have thought it would have better demos than most ITV shows.

Even though an extra million would have been nice makes much more sense to recommission a slightly underperforming series which has generally been well received than start yet again with something else which might bomb anyway. With a repeat run in a decent enough slot and I suspect an ITV4 outing their is no reason why it couldn't pick up viewers second time around.

As for the slot - Friday is fine IMO.

Yes, ITV and ESPN will be hoping for no more upsets this round.

There's a dilemma in keeping the top teams apart - yes they want the top teams to go as far as possible but at the same time a game like Man U v Barnsley isn't ideal for prime-time live ITV in the 6th round either.

At best (for ITV/ESPN) there will be 4 big clubs and 4 unfashionable teams in the quarter-finals. So if the big clubs are kept apart they want them away otherwise it could be a very mundane 6th round for the TV companies.

Would be interesting to see the demos as in theory I'd have thought it would have better demos than most ITV shows.
I posted the Housewives with Kids and Men 16-34 demo averages for the full series of GNO earlier. Here they are again with the skews added:

Housewives with Kids: 491.5k (16.8% share, TVR = 7.4) [15% skew]
Men 16-34: 180k (10.0% share, TVR = 2.4) [5% skew]

Here are a few other demos:

Adults ABC1: 1.14m (10.6% share, TVR = 4.3) [35% skew]
Adults 16-34: 465k (11.4% share, TVR = 3.15) [14% skew]
Women 16-34: 286k (12.45% share, TVR = 3.9) [9% skew]
Adults 65+: 734k (11.5% share, TVR = 7.1) [22% skew]

And to compare:

All individuals 4+: 3.34m (14.1% share, TVR = 5.8)

Only just realised that in the final schedules, BBC moved the BBC News bulletin in between the two Six Nations games next Saturday, meaning that Let's Dance for Comic Relief and Saturday Night Takeaway are in a direct head-to-head clash from 19:00 - scheduling genius from BBC.

Can't work out if you are being ironic here, although there is no so perhaps you're not. Definitely better not to have the news up against Ant 'n' Dec and giving them a headstart. It's a fascinating clash and I can't predict which will win.

They've cut the afternoon news to 10 minutes from the usual 20 to fit it in between the rugby matches.

6-7m for a show like it (family entertainment) is brilliant, especially considering the ratings we get on Saturday nights in January-March nowadays.

Neighbours seems to be holding steady, with viewing figures around the 1.7 million mark. While the show certainly can never compete with Corrie now, as it did in the eighties, it shows that a loyal following remains. Again another sensible purchase for Channel 5 and something that regularly does well for them.

So Sarah Michelle Gellar has been casted in a pilot from CBS.

Along with Sarah, CBS has the following actors in their 2013 pilots:

Jason Isaacs, Josh Holloway, Robin Williams, David Alan Grier, Rupert Grint, Dylan McDermott, Toni Collete, James Wolk, Kevin Pollak, etc

I really hope Lets Dance flops hard this year- it's total cr*p.

The BBC should bring back Comic Relief does Fame Academy, or create a new Comic Relief TV show. Lets Dance is an embarrassment.

Iv always thought its been cheap thrown together stuff-its greatest highlights Rufus Hound and especially Robert Webb(about 3 minutes altogether). Overall though its the BBC trying its least hardest to support Comic Relief.

If they are going to do more Superstars rather than throwing it out in the summer they'd be best holding it back for Sport Relief next year in place of Let's Dance - though the issue is how they make money (for charity, so it's OK!) out of it.

Let's Dance would be much stronger now had they only used it for Comic Relief and not for Sport Relief too.

Definitely. I don't understand why they've introduced free web voting this year either. Surely that means that they'll just raise less money for Comic Relief...

How about Comic Relief does Glee Club? That's also pretty good.

Isn't that the point of it?

It's gloriously naff, but I bet it's creaming the football in the ratings.
