These are the primetime adult television viewing figures for 2 - 8 May, 2011.

For an explanation of how the viewing figures are calculated, please read this article.

For previous weeks click here.

Please note that the calculation of viewing figures has changed, which means that the viewing figures for this week are much higher (and more accurate) than previous weeks.  But the calculation hasn't affected the rankings of the shows, so those can still be compared even if the actual numbers can't.

@Mrs Chix Generubbish didn't gain, it's still the same, it's just the ratings were being calculated wrongly
