Profile report Reach report Top ads report Top programmes report

The top 50 programmes on TV based on the size of their total viewing audience over the week (including live, VOSDAL, time-shifted and total audience viewing figures).

Filter by channel or audience.

Here’s some information about the data you can see on this page:

  • Live: the audience who watched the programme at the time of transmission on a TV set.
  • VOSDAL: this is ‘Viewing-On-Same-Day-As-Live’.  The audience who watched a recorded or on-demand programme that has been viewed on the same day as the original broadcast (on a TV set).
  • Time-Shifted: the audience who watched the programme recorded or on-demand between 1 and 7 days post-broadcast (on a TV set).
  • Total Audience: the consolidated viewing audience for the programme. This is the sum of the live, VOSDAL and time-shifted audiences.
  • Share: the percentage of the total available viewing audience who were watching the programme over a given time period.

All numbers are expressed as a share of all commercial broadcaster TV viewing (on a TV set) unless ALL TV is selected, in which case the share is of all broadcaster TV viewing (on a TV set).
