Hmmm, Fun House made it to #6 in the 5pm slot on Challenge+1 (22,000 viewers), but doesn't look like they stayed tuned for Knightmare afterwards!

Oh dear, doesn't sound good!

But then only a small amount of people's viewing habits are noted.
quite frankly I think the figures are lot higher but KM fans don't have one of those silly black boxes make it official.

Km has always been a bit of a cult favourite, and it appears it shall remain that way.

Looks like Challenge have now dropped both Fun House and Knightmare from the teatime slot as it "wasn't working" ratings-wise. No word on when they will be back or at what time. :(

Wow that is not good news. I guess the problem was they have already been on so the likes of us were unlikely to watch the teatime viewings. It could have implications with regards to seeing other series.

I hope this would not put Challenge off to acquiring more series in the future but this will not have helped. :(

I tend to be at work, and not back home until half 7 - on a good day :(

Part of the problem with Challenge's output is their constant repeats of the same series or episodes of their shows. However much of a fan of a show you are, there is a limit as to how often you can watch it in a year.

Series 1 and 2 were great but have already featured on Friday nights, Saturday mornings and as part of the Challenge summer schedule. I would really hope that they would assess the viewing figures across the last year, rather than just the recent teatime slot.

Ratings for Series 1 and 2 might not be good, because people have seen them several times recently. However if Challenge were to screen Series 3, it could be a different story.

That's right, im certainly not going to sit though them all again so soon.
(this is why they to be released on dvd, so we don't have to be controlled by tv)

Maybe they should have done the teatime slot after Christmas.

Another thing I would guess they're target audience are older people, hence family fortunes and that awful million quiz are always on, all the time.. KM probes doesn't appeal to the vast majority of their audience. ???

Ad also wish they would stop lumping KM with Fun house.

This is why ITV should air it, wouldn't have to buy a licensee, they repeats all sorts anyway.
