Ratings for the week Jan 8-14 in the US and UK.

18 01 2007

Football continues to dominate US ratings, with Superbowl XLI approaching. Outside of football fever, Grey’s Anatomy took back it’s position as America’s number one drama, but House may have something to say about that starting next week, when it starts to feel the benefit of that Amerian Idol lead-in. The premiere of 24 was down on last years 2 hour start because of the football, but it picked up on Monday. From now until May, expect Idol domination.

1. BCS Championship Football — Ohio State vs. Florida, Fox, 28.80 million

2. NFC Playoffs — Philadelphia at New Orleans, Fox, 27.44 million;

3. AFC Playoffs Post-game — New England at San Diego, 24.64 million;

4. Grey’s Anatomy, ABC, 23.03 million

5. House, Fox, 17.78 million

6. 60 Minutes, CBS, 17.47 million

7. Desperate Housewives, ABC, 16.76 million

8. CSI: Miami, CBS, 16.01 million

9. 24 (Sunday), Fox, 15.79 million

10. Two and a Half Men, CBS, 14.78 million.

In the UK, next weeks figures may include Celebrity Big Brother’s current racism row which is boosting C4’s figures right now, although I understand the program was going nowhere this year (ratings wise) without it. Lucky Channel 4, and Carphone Warehouse I guess. For this week, the charts are the same as they have been for the last 10 years, only with slowly falling viewing figures (no doubt as a result of loyal soap viewers being taken into care, going into rest homes, etc, and not being replaced by younger people.)
1. Coronation Street, ITV1, 11.76 million viewers.

2. Coronation Street, ITV1, 11.33 mil.

3. Coronation Street, ITV1, 11.33 mil.

4. Coronation Street, ITV1, 10.57 mil.

5. Coronation Street, ITV1, 10.46 mil.

6. Coronation Street, ITV1, 10.39 mil.

7. Eastenders, BBC1, 10.14 mil.

8. Eastenders, BBC1, 9.85 mil.

9. Eastenders, BBC1, 9.37 mil.

10. Eastenders, BBC1, 9.22 mil.

ITV are definitely looking at ways to put Corrie online, but it is important for them that putting it online doesn’t eat into their existing audience and Ad revenue.
