Well, that's just a guess, because as you say they didn't show it on the May Day Bank Holiday and the Beeb said, oh, it's a Bank Holiday, they're different - but Will Wyatt's book said they lost the equivalent of an entire episode when they had to do their re-edit of the siege, so they must have just run out of material and used that as an excuse to catch up.

In Wyatt's book he says it was the producer's last shows before retirement and he had "taken leave of his senses" and produced programmes that couldn't be shown in the usual slot, and it was a question of either cutting them to buggery or showing them after the watershed which would have made them look stupid (as had been the case with the Casualty episode the previous year).
Thanks. The siege was quite strong stuff even after all the editing.

I cant believe Channel4 are now doing a fixed camera documentary series in a fried chicken shop. Theyve now done these based on maternity ward, A&E, police station, ambulance services, club bouncers, gym, hotel, school, some others I cant remember and now a small chicken shop.
Is that a shop selling small chickens, or a small shop selling chickens?

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.
Cheers for that.

For some reason, I thought it was getting 700k ish overnight, but clearly not!

Is The Walking Dead the highest rated programme on Fox recently?

Do you think that maybe the bbc would be best to try a light entertainment pilot block and create a eight week trial on screen as they once did with the comedy playhouse. A sketch show with a comedian. A game show. Apanel game. Just to mix it up like a kinda festival idea and then see if any good ideas grow from it.

RTL in Germany are doing something pretty similar soon. For the next 3 Fridays, they're trying out new entertainment shows;
[LIST=1][*]Shooting Stars - Promis an ihren Grenzen (Stars at their limits); (this format is Born to Shine, the one shown on ITV in 2011).[*]Unschlagbar (Unbeatable)[*]Cash Crash[/LIST]They all look ok. Good to see someone making an effort. I agree the BBC should do something like this.

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.
Thanks for that - sounds like another relaunch is in the offing

Thanks KMair.

Good start to Let's Dance, considering the opposition though, I don't think it is a great start, as next week it will be up against Ant and Dec.

What did The FA Cup peak with?

Have to say that's a good start for Let's Dance - however the opposition will be different next week.

Share pretty good aswell.

I don't think the 9pm start for Jonathan Ross is helping it.

I can imagine Ant and Dec and Lets Dance attract the same age group of viewers. Having bands like one direction, the script and Kimberly from GA would really appeal to a younger audience. It will be good to see some real competition on a Saturday night from next week.

I'm amazed at that Let's Dance rating - given that it's somewhat past its best, I expected it to be in the high 4s/low 5s, To be pushing 7m is fantastic!

I can remember reading Wyatt's book that the the atmosphere of the original episodes was heavy with 'sexual menace' or something similar.

Thanks, guessing that excludes HD though as it averaged 3.25m.

Great for Let's Dance.

Funny how many of those wailing about Let's Dance seemed to be glad handing ITV for its (supposed) "hit" show Splash - a million times more execrable than Let's Dance is.

Let's Dance won't feature in the lists of most derided shows in 2013. Splash will.

This is a silly question, but as the Lotto draws are live, does this mean the show itself (In it to Win it) is live also?

Thanks for the ratings KMair. Do you have any ratings for The Sparticle Mystery on CBBC yesterday? I know some people that work on it.

They were repeats yesterday. I'm interested also to see how the first run episodes did during the week.

Well I'm surprised Let's dance was that high. I was expecting 5m. I think it will be in the 4-5m range next week. SNT should be in the 5-6 range. I don't an't to see big gasps at lets dance loosing 2m next week because it is probably going to happen and we all know it. The football did okay for what it was. The old timers in it to win it and casualty did okay as well.

That is the highest Saturday night figure of he year so far. I think the bbc need more light hearted entertainment shows that are just fun and silly. Because there is a captive audience out there.

But a good start to a supposedly bad show.

So in the end this week hasn't been bad at all for BBC one.
