Looks like BBC2 out-rated ITV over the entire day on Sunday, helped by Top Gear's 7 million strong return to prime time.
Another blow for the beleagured commercial broadcaster, though reports that they are moving closer to the recruitment of a new leader will no doubt be well received.
Announcements that Primeval and Demons will not be recommissioned for further series also broke last week. Again, no real surprise given their reported cost of £1m an hour for the CGI heavy entertainment dramas. Looks like Saturday night will have to be X-Factor and gameshow night for ITV if they are to build ratings over Q4. No bad thing in our view, there's always a place in the nation's heart for a good gameshow.
