Britain's Got Talent Beats BBC Talent Show

Britain's Got Talent returned to our screens this weekend with a massive victory over the BBC 1 talent show "I'd Do Anything", the second series of the ITV talent show had 8.8 million hooked.

The programme that gave the nation Paul Potts looks set to be a ratings winner over the coming weeks as viewers continue to follow the hopefuls on their journey. The BBC had to settle for second place as 1.4m viewers switched channels for Britain's Got Talent. ITV benefited all evening with a strong performance on shows like the new US Drama "Pushing Daisies", starring former Brookside actress Anna Friel. One in four viewers watched the new drama, which was up against the old BBC favourite "Casualty". The ITV drama was just 500,000 viewers behind and next week will give a clearer picture of ITV's Saturday night ratings battle prospects.

At least the BBC still has Dr Who, on 8.1m this week is still holding strong for it's fourth series.
