  1. 262K for bit after 8.30pm for 24:Legacy is a terrible result. Will see its time out at 9.30pm from next week….or may even end up 10.30pm on those numbers.

  2. Technically it’s the first time this year MAFS has beaten MKR because the later reclaimed top spot after timeshift the last time and will more than likely do it again this time.

  3. A huge percentage fall for the 2nd ep of ’24’ given the nature of the show’s plot-I forgot ‘Homeland’ was on and I wasn’t alone , apparently…nowhere as compelling as it once was.
