From UK TV Ratings;

Perfection - 1.20m
Pointless - 3.67m

Tipping Point - 2.05m
The Chase - 3.25m

Countdown - 358k
Face the Clock - 299k
Deal or No Deal - 930k

(all without +1)

Pointless ahead of The Chase. Perfection looking ok, whilst Tipping Point continues to do very well. C4 daytime looking dreadful; with Countdown low; Face the Clock rising slightly on yesterday, but still very low; whilst DOND is once again below 1m (I think a new low for weekday daytime).

Anyone have any demographic information on The Big Bang Theory? I am after what kind of % of young males watch the programme.

Also, if anyone knows any other programme that is a hit with the teenage male market that would be fantastic!
Channel4Sales is your best bet. I found a random episode from Tuesday 5th on E4 with a total audience of 950,000. 22% of the audience were 208,000 men 16-34, a 2.8 TVR (i.e: 2.8% of men 16-34 in the UK watched).

Just a word of warning - I've lost my access so ratings may be tricky to come by this weekend I'm afraid... (I'm UK TV Ratings on Twitter for those who don't know!).

Excellent for The Big Reunion to increase week-on-week to 1.1m (1.3m inc +1) and to be infront of BBC2, Channel 4 and Channel 5. Its a great show for ITV2 and quite fascinating to watch. The officials will be interesting. Maybe close to 2m with +1.

EE tops the night and Emmerdale posts another underwhelming 8pm rating of just 6.6m. And its massively down on last year now that Corrie has moved back to Wednesdays. As one problem is fixed, another problem arises. I really think the episode needs to be merged but then that would cause an EE clash every week and ideally this is something they don't wanna go back to again. Its a tricky situation for ITV. Not sure what to do with that second Emmerdale for the best because when it was initially introduced by in July 2009 it seemed like a stroke of genius but now its apparent the Corrie episode was supporting it hugely despite the latter struggling somewhat in an awkward 8.30pm slot.
No it's Not....Show the extra episode on Wednesday at 8:00pm (when they can) and then when they have caught up cancel the 6th episode.....6 episodes is too much to follow.

8.6m peak of EastEnders last night and a decent BBC 3 showing.

The Chase is really starting to struggle, relatively speaking, opposite Pointless now. Has Pointless' lead in improved or something?

C4 have won the rights to the 2014 Winter and 2016 Summer Paralympics, pledging 45 hours of the former and 500 of the latter (200 of which will be on C4 and it's other stations).

Struggle? Really? I just think it peaked over Xmas and has now hit its base. People on here will be calling for the axe next...

It actually peaked a few weeks ago on one of the snow days - an episode got 4.3m.

The Chase is just going to hover around 3m unless they can pull out something that'll boost it's ratings - more primetime editions maybe.

Ah yeah I forgot about the snow boost. 4.3m is huge at 5pm.

Is there a place to view a full list of the overnights?

I'm interested in the slot average on Channel 5 for 11pm on week nights

Hence relatively speaking. In comparison to Pointless it has seen a bit of a decline and not just from the snow days. Not much of one at the moment but I hope ITV give it a rest soon to keep it reasonably fresh, otherwise it'll go the same way as The Weakest Link and Deal or No Deal.

"Struggle" is a baffling word to use when describing a show clearing the 3 million mark at 5pm every weekday. Sure, Pointless has regained the teatime crown as expected but with BBC1 so far in front of ITV in terms of audience share now, you wouldn't expect an ITV daily to be beating a BBC daily from the same genre in a head-to-head, especially when you factor in the effect of the commercials and also BBC News at Six viewers tuning in early. Even if The Chase is the better show of the two and of course that's open to debate anyway, those two factors are always going to make it difficult for them to win these kind of battles in the long-term. ITV and its flag wavers will have to make do without the bragging rights, and content themselves with the fact it's still a really big show for that timeslot.

The timing of The Chase's slight dip is unfortunate though, not long after they announced that massive order including a ton of celeb specials it didn't really need. They'd be most unwise to go too overboard from here as gameshows have a limited shelf life, and that can be exacerbated through overexposure. Look no further than Million Pound Drop and Deal or No Deal on C4 for examples of that. But if they're sensible with it, then it's still going to be a big hit 3-4 years from now I think, maybe more. If on the other hand they go down the C4 route, it'll be showing signs of age within about half that time.

There was an issue with ITV's data log for w/c 21st January so I don't think Mr. Selfridge's official has been released yet. It will probably be released next Monday.

These are great rzt do you have the demos for Graham Norton by any chance? Thanks
The demos for last Friday's episode of The Graham Norton Show were: http://oi47.tinypic.com/talmbp.jpg

BARB didn't publish the consolidated rating for episode four, their website will end up posting it in about six weeks' time. So until then I don't think we'll find out an exact rating. But based on the 8.5m (inc +1) consolidated average the first four episodes have reportedly had so far, you can estimate that episode four had a consolidated audience of c7.1-7.3m exc +1 (c7.8-8.0m inc +1).

Last week's episode had the following breakdown:

2100- 5.83
2105- 5.79
2110- 5.20
2115- 5.80
2120- 5.79
2125- 5.48
2130- 5.33
2135- 5.67
2140- 5.08
2145- 5.62
2150- 5.74
2155- 5.75

Universal dislike for Mark Wahlberg on The Graham Norton Show tonight. Be intersting to see the AI figure to see if he creeps down towards Daybreak territory. And a breakdown of the ratings to see if there was a lot of going to bed early.

Fair point, 'struggle' was a bad choice of word. It does prove BBC One and ITV can both attract an audience if they put their mind to it and, of course, it's not the only slot where they have competed in the past few weeks. But there is a definite dip and, as you say...

The timing of The Chase's slight dip is unfortunate though, not long after they announced that massive order including a ton of celeb specials it didn't really need. They'd be most unwise to go too overboard from here as gameshows have a limited shelf life, and that can be exacerbated through overexposure.

If on the other hand they go down the C4 route, it'll be showing signs of age within about half that time.
I agree; for me, two 13 week runs a year should suffice - one between October and December and maybe one between April and June, though I'd understand if they combined them in one 26 week run between October and March.

EDIT: Saying this, I wouldn't be totally surprised if The Chase sees an uplift next week. I'm now sure if I'm imagining things but it feels as though it, in particular, seems to dip and rise week-to-week, as though people watch a week, then give it a weeks rest (maybe watch Pointless instead) then switch back to The Chase again. I could be going mad but we'll see on Monday!

Do No Harm after 2 episodes has been cancelled by NBC.
The most surprising part of that news is that it made it as far as episode 2. SVU repeats slotted into the Thursday 10PM slot for the next couple of weeks. Thursday night has just lurched from one disaster to another for NBC the last couple of years. They need a serious relaunch of the Thursday line-up next season. I would assume that Hannibal will take over the Thursday 10PM slot in March/April (with the aid of Voice promotion) but maybe they'll just give up and put Rock Center back there.

USA are still doing okay but I think they need to broaden their slate and do shows that don't have quirky characters...
Disagree. If anything the problem is that more and more they've ditched the 'quirky character' and are now just churning out a series of fairly bland procedurals. Although I hate the quirky character tag. I prefer distinctive characters. In truth the best thing USA can do right now is follow the instinct they had with Political Animals and try to move away from the procedurals. The injection of comedies into the schedule should help break things up a little though.

In season it still seems to be unscripted that's working for cable with the occasional, sometimes very notable, exception like The Walking Dead.
Its not just in season where that's the case. You can count the big drama hits on cable on one hand but there's a never ending stream of unscripted hits. Far too many of them have war in the title...

Speaking of Ben & Kate and Up All Night, has anybody seen the ratings from this Monday night?

I commented on how bad last weeks figures were (144k and 90k respectively), and speculated as to how long they could stay in their present timeslots with those numbers, just wondering if they'd fell any further.
I wonder if ITV2 is banking on some kind of pick-up for the comedy block now that Miranda and Mrs Brown's Boys have ended on BBC1? Why on earth they schedule their first comedy block opposite those I still cannot even begin to work out. Having said that its probably worth just throwing in the towel both Ben & Kate and Up All Night at this point. Fox has cancelled Ben & Kate and Christina Applegate has just announced that she's leaving Up All Night and won't be part of the reformatted multi-cam episodes. The irony there being that part of the reason NBC gave for switching to multi-cam was that they wanted to keep the brilliant cast they'd assembled.

There's now talk that NBC might approach Lisa Kudrow to take over the role. At this point I can't help but think it might just be worth NBC giving the show a new name and relaunching it completely next season.

Oh, forgot to mention, Elementary received a 2.3/11.02m. So much for that post-Superbowl "push". CBS really bought it upon themselves for this one really. Won't be surprised to see this one ending after May.
Shows very rarely get a post-Super Bowl bump. I don't know why every year people expect the show that got the Super Bowl lead-in to have a giant jump in its audience for the next episode. The last time that really happened was with Grey's Anatomy and that was already showing signs of growth and they were smart enough to end on a pretty big cliffhanger if memory serves. At this stage there's basically no chance CBS don't renew Elementary. Whether it stays in this Thursday night slot is another issue entirely.

I wonder if ABC are testing out Shark Tank in that 8pm hour with a view to a permanent move? A 1.3 for a repeat isn't bad - better than a lot of original scripted has done for them there since Ugly Betty was at its peak.
I think I mentioned last week that I can see Shark Tank / SHIELD / Scandal being ABC's Thursday night line-up next season. Regardless of whether SHIELD does ultimately replace Grey's next year I can certainly see Shark Tank moving into the Thursday 8PM slot. Nothing is working for them there and its not through a lack of trying. They've put a lot of different shows in that slot and all of them have died very painful deaths.

CBS shouldve put Person of interest in rthe post Super bowl slot. Elementary did bad yesterday even with ll the exposure it got. POI wouldve got a boost and that better lead-in wouldve boosted Elementary anyway.
There's absolutely nothing to suggest that Person of Interest would have gotten any kind of sustained boost had it aired out of the Super Bowl. On the whole shows just don't do that. Having said that I still can't quite work out what CBS was shooting for when they put Elementary after the Super Bowl. It doesn't really make sense on any level at all.

I still think Scandal will remain at 10pm slot because I read a comment on the site that if Scandal was pushed to 9pm, the amount of violence and sex would need to be toned down.
I can see no reason why Scandal's content would have to be altered if it aired at 9PM. The sexual content is no more explicit than anything The Good Wife has done since moving to 9PM (and on a Sunday to boot) and the violence isn't even close to the league you can see in the likes of The Following or Criminal Minds or any other number of shows in the 9PM slot. I would hope that the reason it won't move is because its working where it is. ABC made the insanity laced decision to move Revenge from Wednesday 10PM this season and its gone horribly wrong so you'd hope they'd just let Scandal stay where it is. Its one of the few shows ABC shouldn't be considering moving to another night...

I've mentioned before that there isn't any "new" ratings hits, unless you count Revolution and (thus far) The Following. The only shows exploding in ratings are The Walking Dead and The Big Bang Theory.

However it seems the big networks are trying out pilots that would be suited on cable. I recall reading on another forum somebody saying a sentence (I paraphrase) "you put up cable shows, you get cable ratings". Except for The Walking Dead of course.
