    @vegemite – Top 20 ratings for Sunday can be found under the Ratings tab at the top. They’re preliminary but show that Superman IV got 496k. No mention of Gotham. This should be adjusted for any over-runs by the time it’s used to calculate the ratings for the week.

  2. Think you will find people tuned in the watch Gotham, instead they got cricket, and they stay tuned in till after the cricket as ads kept saying Gotham was next, instead we got Superman 4. therefore the cricket rating figures cannot be trusted as legit.

  3. Although it is fabolous to be able to claim that you are number 1 in such and such ratings category but ultimately, whoever got the largest percentage of the advertising share is No. 1.
