RATINGS! The Nightly Show scores best viewing figures in weeks

Latest UK TV viewing figures and ratings


Bradley Walsh has provided The Nightly Show with its best viewing figures in weeks.

The sixth run of the ITV late night chat show ended with 1.3 million viewers last night.


On average, Bradley's week averaged 1.6 million, the best numbers since week two with John Bishop and up around 500,000 viewers on the past two weeks with Dermot O'Leary and Gordon Ramsay.

But although numbers are up, they're still below the reported 1.8 million target that the News At Ten was getting.

The show still has two weeks left, with comic Jason Manford next to host from Monday night.


A second series has been rumoured, but in a later slot at 10:30PM.

Elsewhere last night, Coronation Street topped the viewing figures with 5.9 million viewers for its first show, returning with 5.6 million for episode two o the night.

Emmerdale had 5.6 million while over on BBC, EastEnders had 5.4 million, the most watched show of the night for the channel.

In the 9PM hour it was a dead heat between the main shows with 2.3 million viewers for both Decline and Fall and Lethal Weapon on BBC and ITV respectively.

In the afternoon, Pointless beat The Chase with 2.6million viewers to 2.3 million.

On the other channels, BBC Two had 2.5 million viewers for Gardeners' World at 8PM while Gogglebox did the business for Channel 4 with just under 3 million viewers.
