Interesting stat in this article that unsurprisingly BBC News has benefitted most from dropping News at Ten with its average up from 4.2m to around 5m.

Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

Hmm, not sure about that - they took two ratings and compared them to a yearly average. Looking at BBC News ratings every day on the DS Ratings Thread, the boost has been minimal.

Yes, a biased report. A yearly average would include the middle of summer, ridiculously slow news days, all kinds of stuff, so comparing two ratings to that is false

If they wanted to they could say that The Nightly Show was a success as the 2.2m it got on Monday was better than the 1.8m ITV News at Ten used to get, but that would be called out immediately.

Considering they've not used the News at Ten titles the two times they've aired at 10pm in recent weeks I guess it's unlikely the 10.30 titles will be retained for future late bulletins.


I was surprised thry didn't use the News At Ten titles last night. But, was this classed as an ITV News Special rather than an extended News At Ten? Just a thought.

Julie is probably busy with the Tonight, including the election specials that start a week Monday.

I know this is bordering on rota territory but it's publicly available information. According to Digiguide, she last presented 10/10:30 on Tuesday 11 April and is next due to present on Wednesday 3 May.
