On Friday, C4 launched The Singer Takes It All to 1.2 million/5.7% (incl +1) at 9pm
Poptastic Abba sang about the winner taking it all while wandering about in ’80s perms looking sad. Channel 4 probably doesn’t sport that many perms, but it might may be feeling sad after Friday’s launch of The Singer Takes It All. Elsewhere, the best of BBC2’s borrowed EastEnders was Tuesday’s 4.9 million/25%
On Monday at 9pm, Channel 4’s Royal Marines Commando School (2 million/9%; 281,000 +1) defeated Channel 5’s Blinging Up Baby (1.1 million/5%; 103,000 +1) and BBC2’s Children Of Syria documentary (500,000/3%).
