TV Ratings: Britain's Got Talent 10m Viewers

Britain's Got Talent continued to dominate Saturday night viewing, gaining an extra 1.5m on last weeks strong launch. The ITV talent show had a whopping 10.3m tuning in, while the BBC "I'd Do Anything", the talent contest to find a star for Oliver!, pulled in 6.1 million viewers, down on the previous week.

Pushing Daisies was in the news during the week as ITV controversially dropped an episode in a cock-up with scheduling with the football. The second installment was watched by 4.7m, with a million deserting the American drama - one can only assume viewers looked to the internet to find the "missing" episode!

Dr Who was also down 1.2m as "Planet of the Ood" was slotted into the earlier time of 6:20pm, a choice Russell T Davies was not happy about. But the BBC Sci-fi drama still attracted 6.9m viewers (33%) so all is not lost. See last weeks ratings story for more : HERE

UK Music Chart News:
Madonna finally went to the top of the UK singles chart with "4 Minutes" after weeks of hype, it was her 13th #1 UK single. Madonna has had more #1's than any other female solo artist. Mariah Carey's "E=mc2" failed to get to the top of the UK Album chart this week, arriving instead at #3. The Kooks "Konk" stormed into the charts at #1, but watch out because The Last Shadow Puppets (Arctic Monkey's Alex Turner's side project) new album is out this week and the single climbed up to #9 in the singles chart.
