…completely unfathomable. Overnight ratings were all over the shop, but could essentially be described as ‘crap.’ On the other hand, the BBC were also all over the place, and there’s no apparent correlation between their ups and downs and ours. I’ve seen this before with summer schedules – my guess is that the BARB sample size is so small, most of what we’re seeing is the noise. It’s a crying shame, however: it’s the best series of the show yet, and more kids deserve to see it.
Compare with: presenter Sam agreed to do a personal appearance for his local gym tonight. They thought they might get thirty or forty kids; he just rang me to say that he’s nervous as hell, because three hundred have turned up. Yow!
