Both Big Brother (4th – 1,057,000) and Gruen Planet (5th – 1,023,000) bring home the goods for their various networks, the latter at the cost of Puberty Blues (15th – 707,000). Big Fat Gypsy Weddings (16th – 660,000) does a big fat nothing for the majority of viewers, as does Randling (24th – 425,000) sadly. A transitional Wednesday that doesn’t offer a lot to viewers but may do with changes to next week’s schedule (already), lead by a very tight 6pm News battle.
