Wow, that's over triple what anything got on that channel in that week in April listed earlier in the thread. Lesson learned for them, I think. Show more talent shows and less paranormal junk.

What are sony going to do with this channel? The rating are still not any better than there were under Tuner. It just seems weird there still carry on with this dead duck of a channel? Surly there would merge it with its other channels to and beef up Tru Crime etc and get that on to Freeview while moving other non crime stuff on to True Entertainment?

Looking at the BARB figures for TruTV ending 2nd July, America's Got Talent had 184k.


Does that include the viewers of TruTV on Made TV?

The simulcast on Made TV is rated separately under the name Tru TV Simulcast.

That particular week [w/e 2 Jul 2017] the figures for America's Got Talent were:

184k on tru TV
18k on +1
26k on Made

Yes that's the obvious thing to do and so has been said before but it depends on how long the arrangement for Turner handling the advertising sales lasts.

Nothing’s really happened with TruTV, if recent memory goes by.

The schedules are still largely the same, although Sony have decided to show a 9pm film on the channel every few days.
