The ratings are in for ep two of Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle, so there’s just time to chuck them into the BrokenTV Numbertron, and see how it measures up against the second outing for Horne & Corden’s Half-Arsed Tribute To Smith & Jones (or whatever it’s called):
That’s right, we’ve flipped the axis from last week. Yeah, you’re right to look excited.
The Guardian article only lists the average for episode two of SLee’s CV, so we’ve adjusted the number for episode one accordingly. Note how Horne & Corden ‘Do’ Hale & Pace (or whatever it’s called) lost 16.65% of their audience after the disappointing first show, while Stewart Lee’s Twenty Minutes Of Really Good Stand Up Supplemented By Slightly Annoying Sketches That Only Serve To Repeat The Previous Point Without Adding Anything Of Real Value, Apart From The Final Del Day Sketch (or whatever) lost 0% of ep one’s viewers.
What will happen for week three? Will Horne & Corden coax some missing viewers back for episode three now the Beeb have stopped running trailers for it after every single sodding programme? Will Stewart Lee hold onto his million acolytes? Will MediaGuardian keep reporting on the figures for the show after Broadcast and Digital Spy stopped mentioning it? Tune in one week from now to find out. Or alternatively, avoid this website on Tuesdays for the next few weeks, because it’s likely to have charts in it.
