A week of little change as we look at another Ratings Top 10 chart
1  The X-Factor (Sun, ITV1)
Boot Camp week is always a big deal as we find out who made it to Judges’ Homes, though Saturday’s show only averaged 7.9 viewers it was Sunday’s show that did extremely well with a tense sing off between Triple J and GND3 capping off our Top 24 discoveries. It’s a shame then that both groups got through as it sort of negates what happened here, I think now we’re into Judge’s Homes territory the ratings will continue to rise.
2  Downton Abbey (Sun, ITV1)
A slight dip in the ratings this week as Mary and The Dowager Countess was desperate to save Downton while Mrs Hughes got some disappointing medical news.
4  Doctor Who (Sat, BBC1)
After last week’s impressive rating, this penultimate episode entitled The Power of Three dipped slightly despite featuring the return of UNIT and some very tender scenes between Amy and The Doctor.
5 [New] The Paradise (Tues, BBC1)
The highest new entry this week is for the BBC’s newest costume drama which has been hurried onto the screen in controversial circumstances as production hasn’t even finished yet. Personally I wasn’t a fan of this programme but it seems that I’m in the minority as this department store saga seems to have won most over with its lavish sets and fine supporting cast.
6  All Star Mr and Mrs (Wed, ITV1)
Shaun Ryder was the big draw this week for this old-school entertainment show fronted by Philip Schofield.
7 [Re] Paul O’Grady: For The Love of Dogs (Mon, ITV1)
Paul O’Grady’s adventures at Battersea Dogs’ Home continue to draw in the viewers as the rating seems to rise on a weekly basis.
8  The Great British Bake-Off (Tues, BBC2)
Another programme that has a growing audience it seems that everybody’s talking about the bake-off that this week featured doughnut disasters and lots of loaves but thankfully nobody mamed themselves on a mixer.
9  Who Do You Think You Are? (Wed, BBC1)
William ‘Ken Barlow’ Roache was the latest subject on this family tree show as he traced one of his ancestors back to Alton Towers which is in my neck of the woods.
10 [New] Fake or Fortune (Sun, BBC1)
The only other new entry this week is this art programme fronted by Fiona Bruce which sees paintings put under the microscope in order for the experts to discover if they are indeed fakes or if they are worth a fortune.
Next week let’s see how the new series of Monroe and the Judge’s Homes stage of X-Factor do in the chart shall we?
