Television enjoys bumper weekend of viewing
Date: 03/09/2013 | Comments
An amazing sport and entertainment line-up meant that TV enjoyed a phenomenal weekend of viewing.
According to TAM Ireland people watched live TV for an average of 3 hours and 17 minutes each day on Saturday and Sunday – that’s 10 minutes more live TV than was watched on the same weekend last year which had a similar line up of programming.
The power of top class TV was once again in evidence; a cracking All Ireland Football semi-final. A fabulous line up of Premiership matches and the return of The XFactor ensured the Irish public were stuck firmly in-front of their TV sets for a large portion of their waking day.
And with all the channels’ Autumn schedules now underway viewers can look forward to a vast array of superb programming across Sport, News and Current Affairs, Entertaiment and Drama.
It’s set to be an enjoyable few months for the Irish TV viewing public.
