The viewing figures for the UK have once more been published, this time for the week ending March 23rd.

Futurama again stays in the Top 10 most watched satellite / cable programmes, but drops one to ninth place, due to football matches and the war (BBC & Sky news pretty much sweeped the ratings during that week).

If we discount pay per view football matches and Sky News, Futurama was the fourth most watched programme on satellite, and was Sky One's third most popular show.

Futurama recieved 0.78 million viewers that week, compared with 0.77 million for the previous show  - up by 10,000.

There's no need to be arrogant.

That's all good. I'm sure it's all down to my campaigning in the pub: 'Watch Futurama! Go on, go on, go on go on!'

That's great for the UK. I see they have better sense than most Americans.

Moving slightly off topic, I changed my source from which I obtain ratings (I now get them direct from BARB), meaning that the latest figures for Futurama are...

Episode: Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles
Shown: Sunday April 13, Sky One
Ratings: 0.86 Million
Position: Top 3rd programme on Sky One

So, that means Futurama has over the past month gained almost 100,000 viewers - excellent news. Interestingly, in the same period Futurama has been gaining viewers, The Simpsons has been steadily declining, by a much greater amount (The Simpsons having lost aroun 200,000 viewers since its season debut).

Note: To put it in comparison (because Sky One is a satellite only service), the channel reached 2.9% of the total viewing public during that week.

^ Let's hope Sky have the sense to use this as a bargaining chip with Fox over the still-unseen episodes.

"Hey, *you* may have cancelled it, but it's *our* number three show after The Simpsons and Buffy! Give us the rest of the episodes, you bastards!"  :D

Very good to see it trouncing Enterprise in the ratings, as well. God, that show is such a watered-down, bland insult to Star Trek...  :p

If Enterprise is an insult, what do you call Voyager?

Great news about the ratings, maybe FOX should pay attention to what happen outside the magic world of FOXnews.
