        Massive peak last night, but only topping the 11m mark once.

        To answer an earlier question, the reason 8pm is showed is because it demonstrates the power of the "lead in" show and whether that impacts the performance of I'm A Celebrity.

                          Huge figures for Blue Planet is brilliant. Sir David is an absolute legend and I look forward to an annual wildlife documentary with his narration... hereís hoping heís around for a while yet - but he is 91 after all... actually, Iím surprised they never turned him into a satnav voice. Perfect for it.

                          Disappointing viewing figures for Howardís End - the prime time BBC 9PM Sunday slot is the biggest the BBC has to offer, and should be getting more than it is. Iím a sucker for a period drama though.

                            If Iím off work, I love BBC day time TV. This Morning can be a chore - Iím not the bigger fan of magazine shows though.

                                  Great ratings for Graham Norton, but shocking ratings for Eastenders.

                                  IAC barely at 7m.

                                        People will pick them back up for the Christmas storylines I imagine. But yes, quite low - Christmas Day ratings at this rate could be interesting!

                                          Gosh, X Factor got a lower amount of viewers than Pointless - I get the competition bit but still, appalling ratings for X Factor.

                                            Deserved.

                                            A lower weekend all round it seems, a lot of people must've been out as it was pay weekend and black Friday weekend?

                                                Heartbeat was such a mammoth show. London's Burning was brilliant, I used to love it.

                                                Remember these were pre-internet days so the figures are relative!

                                                  Totally! Still bonkers to think of You've Been Framed outdoing Strictly though.

                                                    Considering how easy you can access media nowadays...
                                                    I found myself skipping my favorite shows and to watch them later, without the commercial breaks.
                                                    For example, Dancing With The Stars here runs for 3h, with almost 45min of commercial breaks throughout the show. You literally watch two dances and get a 10min break. It's driving me crazy.
                                                    Internet really gave a new way to experience things we love watching. And so did Netflix to an extent.
                                                    5.05.2009 / 6.22.2011 / 4.24.2013 / 4.25.2013 / 3.1.2014 / 9.13.2014 / 7.21.2016 / 7.14.2018 / 7.15.2018
