As always around the festive period, everybody has the TV guide out and is looking for what Christmas specials are on, what time the King’s speech is, or if Die Hard is in fact a Christmas film. Now that it feels like we’re on day 700 of January, we thought it would be nice to reflect and have a look at what drew in the most viewers this Christmas:

1st = The King (10.72m)
2nd = Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special (5.44m)
3rd = Michael McIntyre’s The Wheel (4.81m)
4th = Call The Midwife (4.49m)
5th = Aladdin (4.39m)
6th = Ghosts (3.92m)
7th = Doc Martin (3.26m)
8th = EastEnders (3.17m)
9th = Coronation Street (2.85m)
10th = Ant & Dec’s Limitless Win (2.69m)

Fun Fact: this is the second year on the bounce that the top 2 spots were the Queen/King’s speech and Strictly Come Dancing.  If you’d like a chat about TV advertising, call us on 01225 302270.
