Special notes

Missing primetime shows

The Broadcast Research Council (who compile the TAMS) did a very shoddy job of them this month by using the incorrect parameters to pull the numbers.

Their documents say that these numbers are for Primetime shows between 17h30 and 22h00 but as you can see, they include daytime shows which means that various primetime show have been left off the list.

Anyhoo, at least we get see the Uzalo omnibus and Isidingo repeat, which they never show us. 

Is that eExtra we see for the first time? Yes.

eExtra makes an appearance for the first time this month with Doodsondes and Bittersoet 2. The trouble is, because these TAMS are often so shoddy, it's impossible to be sure if this is actually the first time or if the channel's simply been left out of the parameters in the past.

If you can't see the documents, here's an overview of the Top 5 shows per channel:
