Lets Dance is in an easy slot tonight against weak competition, football involving two fairly minor teams. So it will automatically rate really well today. But this is a stale, boring format well past its best with poor production values and once it faces decent competition, its ratings will sink.

wasn't that a CBBC thing?
Yes but its pretty decent - probably as good as Lets Dance. The presenters are more entertaining for a start. The glee clubs are really good also.

It faces SNT after next week so it'll be a tight battle.

Don't know, both Everton and Oldham have big followings in the North West and there's always a default football audience. I'd still say 3 million will be watching the fitba.
Actually next week is ITV's big fitba week with Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool to be shown.

FOX (exc/inc +1)
22:00 - The Walking Dead: 346k (1.9%) / 358k (2.0%)
Is The Walking Dead down quite a bit there? I seem to recall the ratings being significantly higher for Season 3, part 1. Or is it only in the officials that they really pick up?

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.
Everything about it annoys me

The over the top fake wackyness 'lets dress up in drag for cheap laughs'
The lack of any new ideas - we did this show once so it is now here by default every year
Same goes for Comic Relief does Glee Club, is Glee even still popular now?
The poor production/random Z list judges
Alex Jones
Steve Jones

the list goes on.

However as has been said, they've deliberatly started it this week as the entire audience wanting Saturday night entertainment is available.

You don't say

Which is a low audience is raw numbers (and raw numbers only) so all you'd done is confirm what you were arguing against.

I believe its half term, so as normal, no one is watching Daybreak. Always happens, not worth making a fuss over.

without wishing to kick start another thrilling discussion about Peterborough, Peterborough schools were on half term this week, but Lincolnshire starts next week.

Not sure when half term is over.

Breakfast TV is habit forming and all about routine, Daybreaks "mums with children" are out of routine because of half term, and so will watch less Daybreak because of that.

Christ! I didn't know this was the Grumpy old men's thread! Let's dance may be the tackiest thing on the box but it's just a bit of fun for charity! Some people really need to lighten up.

There is nothing wrong with it at all. It's very similar to splash in that it may not be the best produced show in the world but it's just a bit of good old fashioned fun. It's for a good cause and I see no harm in handing 4 weeks over to the show.

All the point's people have made against it are all very good point's yes. But it's a relaxed fun type of show that pulls in a decent audience. What more do you need? I do believe SNT will beat it but it wont collapse.

The eight episodes of season 3 which aired last autumn averaged 387k (2.0%) in the overnights.

The series started with 447k (2.4%), but dropped off across the run to as low as 336k (1.8%) for episode 7 before recovering slightly to 356k (1.8%) for the 'finale'.

The consolidated numbers were far higher: an average of 1.06m (5.0%) with a best of 1.22m (5.9%) for episode 4, and even the lowest - episode 3 - was 937k (4.6%).

So it was almost tripling its overnight figures in the officials.

All figures inc +1.

agreed, people need to take Lets Dance... for what it is, and not what its not.

All should all just loosen up let our hair down sometimes.

Glee Club would return in March. Last years final got 1.23m across BBC1 and CBBC. This year its likely to be just CBBC.

hmm, as someone who hasn't slagged it off, I think I can say it would be nice if they just went for a different frothy format, I preferred fame academy, but wouldn't mind something totally new.

Just because it's for charity no reason to be complacent, a better show, better presenters, more viewers, more money for charidee.

BTW at least the Everon-Oldham match was decent.

Thanks it's nice to have some back up! put it this way it's more enjoyable than Britain's Brightest. I would rather a really silly show than a stuffy, slow boring quiz. Not that I am saying Britain's Brightest was a total waste of space. I think it could do the role pointless celebrities does on Saturday nights but it's not a feature.

Well this is the BBC we are talking about and they find that extremely difficult. Anyway what's new and frothy about fame academy. That's the show that turned BBC One away from singing contests for a very long time.

I agree something new would be nice. A splash type format is needed.

Just saying I preferred FA to this, and it shows that put under a comic relief label any show can have moderate success.

It was a good match. I flipped between the two. And your right the comic relief label gives the show a purpose. without that what would be the point.

Think we're getting a bit confused here, my fault, I meant i preferred Comic Reliefs Fame Academy.


I'd probably watch the football over either, but would catch up on CRFA.

Any recent figures for Daybreak please - BBC Breakfast seems to be steaming ahead at 1.6 m
This week's ratings for Daybreak (exc +1), with last week's in brackets:

Mon: 673k/17.2% (729k/17.5%)
Tue: 680k/16.8% (681k/17.0%)
Wed: 651k/16.4% (682k/16.6%)
Thu: 652k/16.2% (694k/16.5%)
Fri: 620k/15.9% (655k/15.9%)

Over the first six full weeks of this year (starting 7 January) Daybreak has averaged 672k (16.4%), down by 4% in viewers and by 1.3 share points on the equivalent period in 2012* which averaged 702k (17.7%).

* That was the six weeks from 9 January 2012, during the interregnum of Dan Lobb and Kate Garraway, and is comparable as most schools had half-term during the week of 13-17 February, the final week in the analysis, but a few had the following week off instead, similar to this year.

EDIT: Including +1 doesn't really improve matters. This year so far has averaged 684k (16.75%) versus 712.5k (17.97%) in 2012, so it's down 4% and 1.22 share points on this measure.
