Second seris of Karl Pilkington’s Sick Of It drew 84,000

This week, Sky 1 perhaps pre-empted our collective feelings about the grey gloom that is January with Karl Pilkington vehicle Sick Of It. However, the channel tried to cheer us up by sending its league of sporty boys back to Europe while it still can.

The second series of Sky 1 comedy drama Sick Of It launched at 10pm on Friday with 74,000/0.5%; the second episode at 10.30pm picked up 32,000/0.3%.

At midnight on Sunday, another 10,000/0.2% watched episode one, while 25,000/0.9% watched episode two at 12.30am. Series one began on Thursday 27 September 2018 at 10pm with 165,000/1% and 100,000/0.9% at 10.30pm.

The second series of Sky 1’s A League Of Their Own – European Road Trip began on Thursday at 9pm with 278,000/ 2%. Two repeats added 115,000, totalling 393,000. Episode one of series one launched with 397,000/ 2% in overnights on 10 January 2019.

Quest’s Born Mucky: Life On The Farm debuted on Tuesday at 9pm with 265,000/1%, tracking slightly ahead of the benchmark share. A Sunday repeat added 121,000/1% to total 386,000.

Quest’s best of the week was Salvage Hunters at 8pm (416,000/ 2%). It beat Discovery’s Gold Rush (183,000/1%) and Really’s Helicopter ER (152,000/1%).

CBS Reality’s best was Murder Wall on Wednesday at 10pm with 230,000/2% – more than Sky 1’s A League Of Their Own repeat (59,000/1%) and Really’s YouTube dermatologist Dr Pimple Popper (165,000/1%).
