The top ten ITV shows have been listed
1. Coronation Street
2. Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway
3. A Touch of Frost
4. Inspector Morse
6. I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here
7. The Bill
8. The Muppet Show
9. Pop Idol
10. Spitting Image
It is unsurprising to find serial dramas like Coronation Street, Emmerdale and The Bill as they have built up a regular viewing fan base which has been built up over many years.
Also it is good to see things like Saturday Night Take-away, Pop Idol and I'm A Celebrity, but it does show a need for good television programming on a Saturday night. I have often thought that Weekend TV needs a good shake up, as the old excuse of 'most people go out' doesn't really work- especially for the early evening as there are many who don't actually go out until later.
I think the biggest ( and most pleasant) surprise in the top ten is Spitting Image... Hands up anyone who bought 'The Chicken Song' single. All together now
