Mmmm... my perspective on the ratings is that they are undoubtedly mediocre, no doubt about that.
But as a long term fan I can see from the talk in the various forums (that matter) that people have a much more positive outlook now for the future of BB than they did after the last series - and that actually the producers have learnt alot of lessons the hard way in the last year and now have the confidence they need to set BB9 on the right track.
You know me, Brekkie - I'm not a fan of regurgitated posts from "other forums".
It seems to me that they didn't learn from last years debacle. The lesson was to choose the celebs more carefully, realise that Jade and family were one-trick ponies, and ACT on perceived racism in the house instead of sitting on their thumbs while the press went into overdrive.
This year's celeb show mucked the format around so that it was unwatchable by me and patently millions of others.
Its still ludicrous spin on your behalf to suggest that people have a positive outlook on the franchise when this incarnation did nothing but harm to it. When you have so little good to say about other channels, it makes it all the more pronounced when you are still championing one of C4's WORST decisions on their biggest show.
