Ratings Chart: Week Ending 18/01/13

Not many new entries this week which shows that the most watched programmes are very safe choices indeed.

1 [1] Mrs Brown’s Boys (Mon, BBC1)
For the second week in a row this offensive comedy has the most viewers in the UK as I think about moving someone else.

2 [2] Miranda (Mon, BBC1)
tv miranda 3 Ratings Chart: Week Ending 18/01/13
More from Miranda Hart’s loveable protagonist in another episode that might not set the world on fire but is still, in my opinion, fairly funny.

3 [6] Africa (Wed, BBC1)
David Attenborough’s documentary series shoots back up the charts this week with another strong showing for this visually engaging programme.

4 [3] Death in Paradise (Tues, BBC1)
Ben Miller’s escapist drama still seems to be packing in the viewers on a Tuesday night as his straight-laced detective continues to hunt out murderers on the small Caribbean island of Saint-Marie.

5 [5] Silent Witness (Thurs, BBC1)
More from Emilia Fox and company as the two-part Silent Witness episodes still seem to be doing a good trade on Thursday and Friday nights.

6 [4] Mr Selfridge (Sun, ITV)
Though it’s fallen down the charts a little bit it seems that this Sunday night drama is still comfortably winning in its time slot despite competition from the BBC.

7 [7] Dancing on Ice (Sun, ITV)
I have to say I’m fairly surprised that this series of Dancing on Ice isn’t doing spectacularly well which may mean that people have simply lost interest in it.

8 [8] Lewis (Mon, ITV)
Another steady week for Lewis as it appears that everybody who watched last week’s first part tuned in for the second instalment this week.

9 [9] Ripper Street (Sun, BBC1)
Still struggling to find its place up against Mr Selfridge, the BBC’s gritty new crime drama stays at number nine for a second week.

10 [New] Blandings (Sun, BBC1)
Interestingly we only have one new entry this week courtesy of this PG Woodhouse adaptation about a posh family and a pig which despite starring Timothy Spall hasn’t done as well as I thought it might.

More ratings same time next week.
