BBC Breakfast close to being beaten yesterday according to Piers Morgan


Monday 22nd June overnights

BBC One 0600-0900 1.3m/40.1% Breakfast
BBC One 0900-1000 1.4m/29.4% BBC News

ITV 0600-0900 0.9m/27.5% Good Morning Britain
ITV 0900-1000 1.1m/23.0% Good Morning Britain with Lorraine

Breakfast had nearly 50% more audience than GMB between 0600-0900 when both were on-air?

Piers and Susanna had an argument this morning over whether they should read out a government statement on the student nurses situation.

Something similar happened before. In the end, neither of them would read the statement, and the gallery got Charlotte to read it. Can't remember what the statement was about, though.

Unless he's decided to compare GMB with Lorraine and BBC News - which were closer (though BBC One still had more than 25% more audience than ITV in that hour) - though that's not comparing with Breakfast...

I do wonder if people are justing telling him what he wants to hear at ITV Daytime, rather than him just out and out making it up...

He didn’t say they were close to beating Breakfast.
He hasn’t said anything misleading.
Not sure why people find his tweets so difficult to read.

This is all pretty dull now.

Oh boy… I’d like a ban on talking about Piers Morgan’s ratings tweets. It always ends up with the same conversation going over the same arguments again and again.

I think I'm inclined to agree with you VMPhil. Piers Morgan is well known to be highly selective and misleading with his tweets relating to ratings, which is perhaps a skill that comes from his days as a tabloid editor (and arguably a required skill if he ever wanted to become a poliitcian).

Therefore to save this thread from getting stuck in a white hole I'd strongly discourage discussion relating to Piers's ratings tweets. If you must discuss ratings statistics please use data that come from Barb, which tend to provide better context and is usually less misleading.

I guess Piers only gets the figures rounded to the nearest million.
Stay Local. Stay Safe. Stay Alive.

I haven’t been able to watch GMB much recently but tuned in this morning at about 7.40am and what a mess. They seem to run an ad break then the weather at about 7.45am then another ad break and then ran the top of the hour about 7.50am. No real detailed news and then straight in a discussion with both presenters about student nurses where Piers decided he didn’t really want to listen to a government statement and threw his toys out the pram because a government minister wouldn’t appear on the show.

On the plus side I did like the split screens with the presenters in the studio.

I know Piers can be selective but he did not say that they “nearly beat” BBC Breakfast at all, he said that the gap was the closest ever, which looks like it was true.

I wasn't responding to Piers's tweets, I was responding to the forum post here. I don't follow Piers on Twitter.

Piers has been rightly moaning about people not maintaining social distancing for months and then immediately after a discussion about Emmerdale and GMB using a 2m stick to space people out at the end of the programme he stood up and walks out straight behind Susanna. Seems pretty rude that he can't wait 5 more seconds for the show to go off air. I know they have to get Lorraine installed with Dr Hilary but he should have walked off the side of the desk he was at or just waited for Susanna to move away herself. Almost felt like it was a deliberate act to get attention. it worked with me Razz
