ITV1 dominates list of 2009's most-watched TV shows

15 December 2009 11:42 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Channel claims six of the top 10 programmes, with Britain's Got Talent final drawing the biggest audience of the year

Table: most-watched TV shows of 2009

ITV1 is set to claim the 2009 ratings crown, with the Britain's Got Talent final proving the most popular show of the year and the broadcaster airing six of the top 10 most-watched programmes up to early December.

BBC1 will be hoping for strong figures for EastEnders and Doctor Who on Christmas Day, but neither is likely to overhaul the 18.3 million viewers who watched the final of the third series of Britain's Got Talent on 30 May, a 68% audience share, as the dance group Diversity beat Susan Boyle.

The Britain's Got Talent final was the highest-rating programme on any UK channel since 20 June 2006, when 18.5 million watched England v Sweden in the 2006 World Cup.

ITV1 had six out of the top 10 programmes on any channel this year, according to figures »

It is thought that Quentin would play Sun Hill's Borough Commander if negotiations go as planned. As well as Blue Murder, she has proved popular with roles in Men Behaving Badly, Jonathan Creek and Life Begins in the past. A source said: "Caroline Quentin has been asked to come in to try and boost the show's popularity. Scriptwriters (more) »
