Not many new entries this week which shows that the most watched programmes are very safe choices indeed.
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.
3  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  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  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  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  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  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  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.
